This book was written for the laity with a twofold purpose: to tell the arthritic patient how best to cooperate with his own physician during treatment and to relieve his physician from the arduous, time-consuming task of giving detailed instructions concerning all the little things the patient can do to get the most out of life with the limitations imposed by the disease.

The views expressed represent the consensus of the leading rheumatologists in this country. There are no misstatements of fact, and the purpose of the work is admirably carried out.
