In the preface the following statement appears, "The first series of Practical Lectures for the general practitioner arranged by the Committee on Medical Education and given at The New York Academy of Medicine in 1926-1927 met with such favor that the lectures are now published in book form in the belief that they will meet a need which is felt by the profession generally."
This series of fifteen lectures on a variety of general topics does not add anything new to medical literature, but the subjects are presented in a practical and popular style. To me the chapters on "The Treatment of Cardiovascular Syphilis" by Harlow Brooks, "General Infection by Bacteria" by Emanuel Libman, "The Cutaneous Manifestations of Syphilis" by George N. Mackee, "Surgical Aspects of Diseases of the Thyroid" by Eugene H. Pool, and "The Treatment of Pneumonia" by David Riesman, are of particular interest. Others may be more
