The value of this book lies chiefly in the convenience and completeness of its arrangement. One side of the page is blank, except for large headings; on the opposite page are all the points to be noted under different methods of examination of the part in question. Undoubtedly, the use of the book would be valuable in establishing a systematic method of approach to the taking of histories and physical examination, but it seems a bit like spoon-feeding.
