This little manual is well done and serves to replace the use of the larger textbooks in the manikin classroom. The book amounts to an outline of operative obstetrics and as such should prove valuable to the student, advanced or beginning. The only objection that can be raised to this volume is that it can be considered inadequately illustrated. Such a book has long been needed as an addition to the American literature, and McNeile has made an excellent beginning. No doubt the needed revisions will be made in future editions. This book can be recommended to the serious student of obstetrics.
