This handy volume is a rather complete manual of internal medicine consisting of a little more than half the number of pages contained in the ordinary, single volume textbook. Each chapter is preceded by a short general discussion including physiology, pathology, chemistry and pertinent methods of examination, after which the various diseases themselves are considered. There is a distinct tendency to recommend proprietary remedies. A book such as this can never replace the standard textbook on internal medicine, but the author has succeeded remarkably well in condensing a vast amount of information in an assimilable form which he intends the student and practitioner to use simply as a guide for further reading in more exhaustive works.
