The purpose of this book is to summarize for students and practicing physicians the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the intestine, and necessarily includes the differential diagnosis of practically all acute and chronic abdominal conditions. In the first of its four parts it deals with methods of examination; in the second, with diagnosis and treatment of diseases and syndromes; in the third, with acute surgical intestinal conditions, and in the fourth, with acute painful nonintestinal conditions. Occasional lack of specific factual detail gives the book an air of superficiality despite its length, and most students would prefer to see an alphabetical index replace part of the twenty-one page table of contents which is placed at the end of the book. Nevertheless, one feels that the author has done commendable work with so great a mass of material and that he achieves his purpose.
