To the Editor:—
I was greatly interested in your review of the book "Interne Praxis" in the July 22, 1950 issue of The Journal (page 1125).With respect to medicine as practiced today in Vienna, it is, I believe, generally true that the training and information of the majority of physicians have not progressed far beyond the level of 1934. The book you review not only demonstrates the inadequacy, by our standards, of present day continental medicine, but more important, emphasizes the need for translation of the finer American textbooks for European consumption. It seems to me that these considerations are important in connection with a critical review of this type.
