This volume is the second on a study of the effect of environment on the organism. It is concerned first with certain general considerations and then with more specific problems, such as gastric ulcer, the neuroses, the urticarias, asthma, glaucoma, arthritis and other diseases. Its object is to show the effect of temperature on the organism under certain conditions of health and disease. This is done chiefly through the method of the study of cases.

The book is rather peculiarly constructed, with double columns and with a mimeographed appearance. The subject is a much neglected one and is probably of some importance, but it would be more desirable for persons who know nothing about this problem to have more cleancut conclusions concerning the various effects of weather on the patient.
