This is a safe book for the person who wants to develop health through proper use of physical exercise. Dr. Crampton has planned the exercises on the basis of physiologic knowledge. He writes in a spirit that is just short of breathlessness, and his book is dressed up with all those details in the way of mottoes, aphorisms, illustrations and anecdotes that make a book of this kind attractive to the public. The book begins with a recommendation for attaining perfect physical condition. It follows with a series of exercises and a schedule of exercises excellently illustrated. The concluding chapters concern proper prescription for exercises, bathing, weight and overweight, and the use of the periodic examination as a means of controlling knowledge as to physical condition. The publishers have made a most attractive book, and it should have a wide circulation.
