This book, written for the use and guidance of hospital patients, will be of interest to all convalescing patients. Stimulating hobbies and games are described in detail and are well illustrated. Certain of the pastimes, such as photography, are rather ambitious undertakings for the patient. The printing is somewhat small, but it is readable and the book can be recommended.
