This book seems admirably designed to orient the physician in the essentials of occupational disease. A long list of chemical poisons and their effects, concisely discussed in alphabetic order, is followed by material on physical agents, the cutaneous lesions of occupational disease, silicosis, malignant disease associated with occupation and, finally, occupational disease due to infection. A well selected bibliography covers 10 pages.
