In this book Dr. Bauer tries, one might say, to bridge the gap between pure genetics and clinical medicine. The general question of constitution is discussed from various aspects, with liberal allusion to practical examples. Obviously a discussion of this sort must be written from a somewhat personal point of view, and not every one will agree in all details with Dr. Bauer's conclusions. From any standpoint, however, the book furnishes interesting and stimulating reading.
