Those familiar with the first edition of this excellent textbook do not need to be told of the virtues of the work, and those who are unfamiliar with it, if they are engaged in the practice of thoracic surgery, should profit by keeping it handy as a reference book for reviewing the anatomy of the pulmonary hilus. It deals only with the techniques of the operations, and this phase of the subject is not slighted, as is so often the case in general textbooks in which the major emphasis is on the diagnosis and the indications for operation. It is brief and to the point, and the illustrations are adequate.
