The author has attempted to collect the knowledge of today with regard to the breast and its diseases. If one is especially interested in this field he will find that the author has done his work well. He has gone into the literature extensively, and presents in masterly array the opinions of surgeons whose study of the diseases of the breast has led to authoritative information on the subject. Especial attention is paid to the diagnosis of various lesions, especially when there is likely to be close simulation between a number of them. This phase of the book will appeal particularly to those physicians who do not operate, and yet are keen to recognize the need to operate at a time when good is still to be derived from such a procedure. Nothing particularly new is offered.
