For one who has not attended the annual Neuro-ophthalmologyfest in Miami, reading this book will be like listening to "Swan Lake" on the radio: the music is there, but one misses all the action. The chief choreographer, Dr. J. Lawton Smith, has apparently attempted to make up for this loss by adding a large number of scenes not present in the original Miami production. Two of these additions, Newton's beautifully illustrated piece on the posterior fossa cisterns and Tyler's contribution on the psychophysiology of vision, are almost worth the price of the book by themselves.
In general the material is notably good. The English neurologist, Meadows, has contributed two excellent studies, on a series of 80 cases of temporal arteritis, and also on atypical modes of presentation of pituitary adenoma. Taveras also contributes twice, on low pressure hydrocephalus and on temporal lobe tumors. Walker and Walsh have a fine paper
