This well and profusely illustrated treatise marks a decided advance over the conventional textbook on physical diagnosis. The entire scope of diagnostic methods is covered, as illustrated by chapter headings such as "Examination of Bones and Joints," "The Endocrine Survey" and "Practical Mental Measurements." It is of interest that the editor has called on no less than twenty-seven experts to write the chapters dealing with different fields—an inarticulate confession of the complexity of modern medicine, which has practically eliminated the one man textbook. The book should be useful to the practitioner.
