This small volume has been prepared for the nonmedical college student; the students of zoology, psychology, physical therapy, etc. It is highly recommended. The book has been clearly and accurately written. The author has successfully avoided complex and confusing constructions and has kept the terminology as simple as possible. He has carefully explained all terms which are likely not to be familiar to the student and in addition has provided an extensive glossary. The illustrations are for the most part well chosen. An interesting innovation is the provision, at the end of each chapter, of a brief word picture of one or more outstanding historical figures in the development of neurology. References to more detailed literature are provided and there is a satisfactory index.
