The internist or general practitioner confronted with problems relating to the nervous system will find this book a real source of help. To make it a text for this purpose was evidently the object of the author. Everything in the book relates directly to clinical syndromes encountered in disorders of the brain and spinal cord.
There has been extensive revision of the second edition, the new chapter on intracranial angiography and newer developments in the management of cerebral thrombosis and embolism being among the important changes. The author is to be congratulated on a thoroughly adequate coverage of modern knowledge of the complex group of conditions with which he is dealing. The book is profusely illustrated and printed on good paper with large, clear type. It should prove popular with all clinicians.
