This is a treatise and manual for school teachers who are doing corrective speech work. In scope it is limited to the most common speech disorders: articulative defects chiefly, stammering less completely, with a chapter on nasality of the voice and one on foreign accent. In such books when written by laymen, the physician often realizes the need of a better knowledge of physiology. This is true here. Clearness of insight into the practical side of certain of the problems treated is thus to a degree lacking. The evidently large experience of the author as a teacher is made of valuable use. On the whole, the book is intelligent, sensible and helpful. Especially to be commended is the sanity of the rather brief chapter on stammering.
