This splendid presentation of the subject of injuries to the head has been prepared for the information of the general practitioner and the medical student rather than the specialist. That it has served a useful purpose is evidenced by the fact that a second edition has been called for within three years after the appearance of the first. The material is presented clearly and in detail from the personal experience and point of view of the author. There is, however, little with which any one could disagree. The illustrations are for the most part excellent and serve their purpose well. A few, notably figures 33, 78 and 162, should be replaced by clearer photographs. Figure 62 erroneously gives the impression that a localized lesion in the superior temporal convolution would give rise to deafness and figure 63 that there are motor fibers in the anterior limb of the internal capsule.
