The first section of this book is devoted to digestion in infancy and childhood, the second to the composition of foods, the third to the feeding of infants and the fourth to dietetic management of pediatric diseases. It is difficult to comment on a work of this kind beyond the statement that it contains exactly what the title says. The work necessary to complete such a book must have been enormous. The author discusses the feeding necessary for every type of pediatric condition imaginable. A list of the feedings given would be a list of all the pediatric diseases. The book is well written; the feedings given are excellent, and controversial points have been avoided. As a reference work this volume should be of great assistance to the general practitioner, as well as to the pediatrician.
