Little can be added to what was said in the review of the first edition of this very excellent book. The text has undergone a thorough revision; new methods of diagnosis are included and old ones are amplified in order to keep pace with progress, and in this, as well as in other things, the author has succeeded well. That portion of the chapter on the head dealing with the localization of the motor centers has been entirely rewritten to conform to what has been shown by more recent investigations to be correct. The sections on acute abdominal conditions and renal lesions have been revised considerably. Many new illustrations have been added; the many good pictures which were such a notable feature of the previous edition cannot fail to be of value and interest to both surgeon and general practitioner.
