The author combines case experiences of physically handicapped persons, with ideas for entertaining and profitable hobbies for these persons, into an interesting and informative book. The suggestions range from individual hobbies to trades such as woodworking and bookbinding; the book also covers cooking, drawing and writing. Details of practice are not given; the references, however, are adequate. The principal merit of the book lies in the interesting presentation of material and the emphasis on the opportunities available and open. This should assist in providing interest and motivation to the handicapped, with whom the great problem is often not to find tasks of which they are capable but to insure that they are motivated to do them. The book is recommended for all persons who are physically handicapped.
