The high standards of style and content set forth in the first edition of Dr. Quick's book on hemorrhagic diseases have been more than maintained in the second edition. The format of the second edition is very similar to the first, but each chapter has been revised. All aspects of hemorrhagic diseases are well covered, but despite the change of title which now includes the term "thrombosis," the reader will find very little that is new in this particular area. The therapeutic uses of epsilon aminocaproic acid and heparin in fibrinolytic and intravascular coagulation bleeding states, respectively, are alluded to only briefly; the surgeon faced with such a case will find little in this book to guide him. This, however, is more a reflection of the dearth of knowledge concerning these syndromes than any fault of the author.

Dr. Quick is a pioneer and one of the most eminent workers
