This monograph is a unique and valuable contribution to medical literature. While the book is a written record of a mother's attempt to teach muscle control to her child with Little's disease, it is replete with medical as well as human interest. The methods and accessory aspects of treatment are described in simple and accurate language. Valuable points are intimately discussed which should serve a most useful purpose to those faced with similar problems. The presentation is concise, and yet the medical reader will be impressed with a wealth of valuable data that this record contains. The book will serve as a valuable document of what can be accomplished with a handicapped child by an ingenious and persevering mother.
