The review of the first edition (The Journal, Nov. 26, 1910, p. 1916) was highly complimentary to the author and his work. In this edition the author not only has made use of his own cases, which was an outstanding feature of the previous edition, but has drawn largely on the clinical experience of others, using only such cases as he himself saw or of which he had personal knowledge. The text has been rewritten so as to include the newer knowledge that came out of the experience in the World War—but it is presented entirely from a personal point of view, and is not a rehashing of the garbled war-time reports. The author's own military experience is the basis of the new text, thus preserving the "personal" feature of the work.
