Because of the increasing interest in therapeutic exercise on the part of physicians in general, medical practitioners are showing increasing interest in physical education. Drs. Nash, Moench, and Saurborn are well qualified to discuss the organizational and administrative aspects of this subject. This new general textbook covers these phases of physical education thoroughly and authoritatively. The book is divided into eight parts: introduction, selecting objectives, setting the stage, routine administration, evaluating outcomes, elementary school program, secondary school program, and special problems.

While this basic textbook on teaching procedures in physical education will be of only secondary interest to most physicians, it will be found to be a complete and thoroughgoing dissertation concerning the development and proper conduct of teaching programs, particularly in elementary and secondary schools.
