This volume, with a glowing and well deserved tribute by Dr. Allen K. Krause, comes at an opportune time and adds much to this important subject. Dr. Myers, with his vast experience as head of the Lymanhurst School, discusses fully in various sections tuberculosis in infancy, in childhood and in the teen ages and among elderly people. His chapters on exposure to tuberculosis, diagnosis, and nonpulmonary signs of tuberculosis in children are all well treated and should be carefully studied by all men in the practice of medicine. Of especial value is his dissertation on tuberculosis among elderly people and the dangers of dissemination of disease by them to the younger generation.
