This book is intended for nurses and, as such, has become well known by nurses for reference and teaching purposes. There will be times when the teacher will need to supplement this material, not only by his or her own experience but also by reference to more complete treatises. For one interested in a briefly but clearly presented roundup of the essentials of medical nursing, however, this book deserves the popularity it has achieved.
