This carelessly compiled volume is intended to be of service to lawyers engaged in medicolegal work and for busy doctors who have not the time to survey the details of the field of neurology and psychiatry. There is no indication that the author's own experience in the field enables him to perform that most difficult task of abstracting the more important facts for general practitioners and lawyers. His material is entirely culled from other books and his illustrations are borrowed. Much of the material has been given in abstracted form for the sake of brevity and the errors are too numerous to mention. The work is not recommended to the legal profession or to the practitioners of medicine.
