This book by an English clinician attempts to do more or less what is accomplished in this country by the various publications dealing with clinics and bedside discussions. The material is simple and well presented, includes no complicated laboratory tests and represents, perhaps, a not entirely undeserved reaction against the emphasis on measurement which is likely to swamp essential clinical observations under a flood of numbers that often becloud rather than clarify the issue. A book of this sort may remind one that a proper balance must be sought.
