This able and complete work is, beyond all question, the best book on nursing extant. It stands without a competitor. The first edition has been retained almost in its entirety and has been greatly added to, to bring the work up to the latest methods. Illustrative of this fact is the outline of a suggested scheme for a three-years course of undergraduate instruction for nurses. Everything in the line of the organization and management of training-schools for nurses, of caring for every variety of sickness, is outlined fully in this volume. Nought in the way of omissions seems to be found. An appendix of several pages, in fine print, contains very numerous suggestions, hints and material from nurses and superintendents of training-schools, not found in any other work on nursing. Altogether, commendation of this book is the only verdict left after reading it.
