We have experienced considerable satisfaction in the perusal of this little work, which is a remarkably clear and readible statement of the general facts in regard to sterilization and disinfection. As the author says, it will probably be of some service, not only to nurses but also to practitioners who have not had the opportunity for a regular course in bacteriology. While it does not cover the ground as fully and in details as does the work of Rosenau, it is a convenient and concise statement of the general methods of disinfection and also gives some accounts of the bacteria concerned in infection, full enough indeed to meet the ordinary wants of the general practitioner for information on these subjects. The book is one that may be recommended.
