This is intended primarily for the use of nurses and public health workers. As might be expected, such a book can hardly contain anything new; but what it does contain is well arranged and simply presented. There are useful chapters on the psychology of the tuberculous patient, opportunities for nurses, and the rôle of nurses in the tuberculosis campaign. The book closes with a list of recent literature on the subject of tuberculosis.
