The addition to knowledge of infant nutrition has been so great in the last few years that Dr. Jeans has appropriately taken on himself the duty of reediting this standard textbook. The chapters on growth and development and on metabolism are well written, and the new knowledge is brought out in fairly simple fashion, so that the text is not confusing to the medical student or the general practitioner, the readers to whom it would most appeal. The book answers satisfactorily many of the questions that mothers ask about their babies and tells what to do in the correction of many minor, but to the household in which a baby lives very important, ailments.
