The author of this monograph gives an excellent account of air embolism and fat embolism. Both subjects are discussed systematically, in detail, and in much the same manner: historically, from the point of view of their pathology and pathologic physiology, and finally as clinical entities. A comprehensive bibliography completes the volume.
Such a book, dealing with two relatively uncommon surgical problems, is unlikely to acquire much popularity among general readers. As a reference book, however, it is to be recommended.
