This little volume, from such examination as we have been able to give it, appears to be in every way an excellent manual on its subject. The author's views are clearly expressed, and are in accord with the best thought on the subjects of training and care of children, their education, disorders and defects. For its compass too, it is very full and complete, and we notice little that could be made much fuller without unduly enlarging the book. The book should be in the hands of not only physicians, but of educators and parents as well, and we bespeak it a wide circulation among all these classes.
