This book makes pleasant as well as instructive reading. It is extremely well written, and the author, in addition to knowing his subject, evidently enjoys the task of putting it clearly before his audience. There are introductory chapters on the general problems of industrial medicine followed by discussion of the disorders resulting from industrial hazards such as poisons and injuries. The concluding chapters on industrial hygiene are especially useful. Numerous excellent illustrations, and bibliographies follow each chapter.
