Brunner has assembled his experiences with intracranial infections encountered in otorhinologic practice in Vienna and Chicago during the last quarter century. The monograph is written for the otorhinologist and neurologist and will be of primary interest to the former. The major intracranial complications of infections of the ear, nose and throat are thoroughly discussed, with emphasis on genesis, symptomatology and treatment. The book appears to have been hastily composed. Many chapters lack coherence, unity and clarity but not verbosity. Grammatical errors frequently distract the reader's interest and attention. Dr. Brunner is an eminent authority in otolaryngology, and the book contains a wealth of valuable material; nevertheless, the presentation is impaired by a deficiency in correct English grammar.
