Many new books on dietetics have appeared recently, and one naturally looks for some distinctive quality in each. The outstanding character of Miss Stern's work at the Boston Dispensary is well known, and this is reflected in the book, which is one of the few on dietetics that takes up in detail the problem of "getting the diet over to the patient." In addition the usual material on dietetics and food values is well presented in brief form.
