The subject matter treated in this text should be of genuine interest to the teachers of crippled children, especially since it includes valuable references to the best current books and literature on orthopedics. It contains essentially a good outline of the range of cases treated by the orthopedic surgeon and offers helpful suggestions for the teacher who of necessity should be acquainted with the special problems of a crippled child. The format could be improved, and the book lacks the smoothness and style of a complete text, as do all compilations of lectures.
