This is a verbose discussion of the problem of acclimitization from the point of view of a physical therapist who is apparently unfamiliar with the pertinent medical literature as well as with physiologic, pathologic and meteorologic contributions in the field. As Dr. Grober has the title of professor of medicine at the University of Jena and is head of the institute of physical therapy, one might at least expect evidence of expert knowledge in his own particular field; but even this, on careful examination of the pages, is not in evidence. The book presents nothing of value to American physicians.
