A new book on the practice of urology designed primarily for the general practitioner and surgeon should be of great aid to the medical profession in general. While not written in the usual textbook manner, the book should be of value to the medical student as a source of reference. Each section is well outlined and the work as a whole makes good reading. The sections dealing with the various aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the urogenital system are discussed from the author's own point of view. It is of interest to note that he believes that nephropexy is again returning into favor among urologists. His discussion of the subject, however, is not convincing and the chapter ends with a plea for renal sympathectomy at the time of nephropexy in order to obtain best results. His discussion of the subject of lithiasis is not well balanced.
