Because of the close relationship between gynecology and urology, the author presents a brief picture of these subjects. He falls short of making it of great value by devoting too little space to the subject of the nurse's responsibility in these conditions, and actual nursing care. The final chapter, written on postoperative care, appears to be a set of rules for hospital routine such as may be seen posted in the house staff room in some institutions. Lacking in this chapter is any discussion of postoperative complications and instruction to the nurse on how to recognize and evaluate untoward symptoms and signs. The book could be made more useful by revision in subsequent editions.
