The work of 26 contributors from Great Britain, Canada, and the United States has been combined in this book. Chapters are devoted to a review of the fundamental anatomy and physiology most pertinent to physical medicine and rehabilitation and to psychiatric aspects, care of the injured, geriatrics, rheumatology, neurology, pediatrics, dermatology, pulmonary disease, heart disease, and orthopedic surgery as they apply to this field. There is also a chapter on vocational rehabilitation. Since the book includes viewpoints from three countries it does not present a unanimity of opinion and there is some repetition. This enhances rather than detracts from the value of the book. Every physician, regardless of whether he limits his practice, will find this volume a particularly valuable reference source.
