It must be admitted that the author of this book approaches surgery from an unusual but interesting angle. Beginning with the head and neck, and followed by the thorax, abdomen, and so on, the subject is considered regionally. The discussion is limited chiefly to diagnosis and operative technic. There is no attempt at dogmatism, nor does the author exploit his personal views. The text is obviously the result of wide clinical experience, and can be read with profit by the surgeon.
