This book is an amplification of an outline of the author's method of teaching clinical diagnosis. Parts I and II are devoted to didactic teaching—the former to the teaching of the technic of history taking and physical examination, the latter to practical history taking and physical examination limited to pulmonary tuberculosis and heart disease, the patients taken from the outpatient department. Part III considers the technic of arriving at a diagnosis, and part IV concludes the volume with a tabulation of signs and symptoms of various diseases, alphabetically arranged. No doubt the author has gained much by organizing and arranging the material presented, but one cannot enthusiastically recommend the book as a reference work. It would be of value as an outline for an elementary course combining physical and clinical diagnosis.
