This well-organized book gives the information usually available in the standard textbooks of laboratory diagnosis in this country. The initial chapter deals with general technique of the clinical laboratory, with a special section devoted to reagents. The chapters following deal with the examination of saliva, gastric and duodenal content, feces, sputum, exudate, transudate, content of cysts and prostatic secretion, urine, spinal fluid, and blood. Included is a special chapter on normal values in blood, urine, and spinal fluid, and another one is devoted to micromethods. In an appendix, relatively few references to the literature (mostly German) are given and technical terms are explained. The entire presentation concentrates on description of methods, with relatively little theoretical discussion. In the selection of the methods, clinical application is kept in mind. Much use is made of tables and very good illustrations. The book is unusually well organized, and a surprising amount of information
