This book seems to be admirably adapted for the use of nurses. The author evidently believes that the trained nurse is destined to become the teacher of the masses along the lines of preventive medicine and sanitation; therefore he has devoted considerable space to the subjects of infection, immunity and bacterial and serum therapy. The technical details of laboratory work and microscopic diagnosis are given little space, as the nurse is not concerned in these branches.
