This is a new revised edition of a book that has had a large sale as a textbook in high schools and colleges as well as to the general public. The volume has had several reprintings. The new edition provides new references to up-to-date literature, up-to-date tables of new data, blanks for personal health records, and new material dealing particularly with mental health and care of the aged. The book has had almost universal commendation and is undoubtedly one of the best books on personal hygiene available.
