This is an excellent thesis reviewing the newest knowledge that has been acquired and that is pertinent to the subject. The book is not a systematic treatise but rather a fresh, interesting and suggestive one. Both the symptomatology and treatment are discussed. Dr. Woodbury insists upon defining dyspepsia as a general disease which is due to poisoning of the system with the products of imperfect digestion and of gastric fermentation. In the closing chapter the subject of dietetics for dyspeptics is considered.
