The title of this volume may be amplified by saying that the work discusses the fundamental problems of the physician's life and activity. Some of the "Vital Questions," as subdivided by chapters, are: "Unequality—the Question of Opportunity"; "The Unfit—the Question of Survival"; "Poverty—the Question of Subsistence"; "Success—the Question of Achievement"; "Death—the Final Question," etc. The entrance of the physician into politics, into work for social betterment, into medical society work, etc., is due to his thought on these same problems which Chapin discusses. This book will stimulate the endeavor to be of service to humanity.
