This book, well printed on good paper, with many excellent photographs and charts, is "boiled down" almost to pocket size. However, wherever the reviewer dipped into it he found the subject under discussion dealt with in up-to-date and sound fashion. British medicine, on the whole, is somewhat more conservative than American medicine, andone finds more stress on clinical features, rather than on elaborate chemical measurements, than would be likely in a textbook of pediatrics published in this country.
