The writer has a clear conception of both the positive and the negative qualities of hospital trustees and has expressed them in unmistakable terms. Every person who assumes the duties of a hospital trustee should read this little book carefully and thus familiarize himself with the best methods of serving the interest of the hospital. There is much in the book that applies with equal force to the hospital superintendent. The author has had extensive experience in hospitals and has acquired an excellent appreciation of the psychology of those attempting the positions dealt with.
