This edition of Ballenger's little book brings it up to date with revisions, new chapters and new illustrations. These are done with brevity and clarity. The new chapter on headaches and neuralgias is particularly welcome. Considering its size, the book is remarkably complete in its coverage. This is accomplished through the elimination of excess verbiage and reduction of the text to bare essentials. It should be of particular value to undergraduate students who must carry an unusually heavy burden of reading. Students need facts to support clinical observations acquired at the bedside, and these they will find most concisely presented in this book.
