This small book is excellent for both student and practitioner. It eliminates many of the cumbersome methods of physical examination and is of practical importance. The chapter on diminished breath sounds is exceedingly interesting, written clearly, and taken up in a novel way. The chapter on signs of tuberculosis is significant for its clarity. The book is easily read and is an excellent addition to methods of physical examination of the lungs.
