This is a physician's office desk reference book that is full of practical information on questions of treatment. Indeed, it aims to be so all inclusive as to include a summary on differential diagnosis, and on the treatment of surgical emergencies and of poisoning. There is also included the physician's "interpreter" in five languages intended to help the physician to formulate questions in French, German, Italian and Spanish that may yield affirmative or negative answers of diagnostic importance. It is in many ways an excellent book and as criticism there needs be—such is expected in any review—one might say that some of the prescriptions suffer from a redundance of ingredients and some from a lack of attention to elegance and palatability.
