This volume from the Mayo Clinic deals mainly with psychiatry and the general practitioner. Many books and articles are written these days for the general practitioner, and the reviewer has learned to view them with the suspicion that they may mean an elementary or superficial discussion. We must be careful not to offer a man a ride in the steerage just because he is not a narrow specialist. Be this as it may, the articles in the present volume are interesting and useful, although their reading would hardly qualify one as a psychiatrist.

There is also an interesting group of articles on amyloidosis, as well as a few other miscellaneous discussions.
