That fat is the natural enemy of mankind every athlete knows, and if Dr. Cutter's book will better aid in getting rid of this persistent enemy, it will not have been written in vain. A number of cases are given in the peculiarly interesting style of the author, and they serve conclusively to illustrate the points the author makes. The book is entertaining, and even if one does not agree with the author's conclusions, he will at least be interested in the manner of stating his case. As an addition to American medical literature, it is unique and should find a place in the advanced medical library.
