Active exercise, because of its wide applicability and its importance in developing the body to the highest possible mechanical efficiency, probably should be given first place in the many agents used in physical therapy. This small volume, which is intended for students, teachers and physical therapists specializing in the field of corrective exercise, is a practical textbook on kinesiology. The exercise treatment of infantile paralysis, spastic paralysis and fractures is not discussed, but it does give exercises suitable for use in any corrective or remedial physical education department where a reasonable amount of personal supervision can be given by the instructor. It can be recommended to teachers interested in this branch of physical education.
