This book gives an excellent description of the physics and the technic of diathermy. The instruments described, however, are of foreign make and probably would be of little interest to the American physician. A large number of conditions are given in which diathermy has been used. A desirable feature is the digest of the research that has been done, given under each disease listed, together with the author's personal experiences. The work also contains an excellent bibliography. These features make the book valuable for the experienced worker in physical therapy. Diathermy is recommended as dependable for the permanent reduction of high blood pressure; such advice is questionable for the physician starting work in this field and desiring conservative information.
