This is a convenient little book to slip into one's pocket and to read at odd moments. It represents an honest effort to present simply, clearly and concisely the essential facts concerning the diseases of digestion and appears to accomplish this object in a satisfactory way.

Many compendiums of this general character are poorly written, badly illustrated or so sketchy as to be scarcely worth reading. This synopsis, however, has avoided these pitfalls and is excellent in every way. It should be popular and should have a useful career.
