This is a remarkably complete compendium of data relating to diagnostic and therapeutic methods employed in medicine and its various specialties. The authors have brought together in one volume a vast number of facts and figures of importance to clinicians. The book is hardly one to be read in its entirety. It will be found most valuable as a reference volume, for medical students and practitioners alike. Laboratory methods have become so important in modern medicine and the volume of data relating to laboratory tests has become so large that a reference book of this kind is greatly needed. Nowhere is so much factual information regarding the laboratory aspects of medicine brought together under one cover as in this new and valuable monograph. The authors are to be congratulated for having completed the tremendous task involved in compiling such an encyclopedic work.
