This is a well written booklet, which can be understood by lay people. It contains many illustrations of the more common conditions, which are selfexplanatory. Considering the size of the volume, many of the ordinary disabilities of the feet are thoroughly discussed in simple terms.

The most important phase of the work throughout the volume is prophylaxis, in that the author emphasizes and constantly gives specific directions for the prevention of minor foot troubles.
