Dr. Isaac A. Abt and Arthur F. Abt have been editing these useful little volumes for forty-six years. The book has constantly increased in value, and the present edition is one of the best. As usual, the book is a gold mine of information. Abstracts are uniformly clear, concise and adequate. Editorial comments are infrequent and, to this reviewer, do not seem particularly informative.

To the busy practitioner, these year books are an invaluable aid in keeping up with the vast amount of pediatric literature published. He who reads the "Year Book of Pediatrics" regularly will never be found lacking in knowledge of current developments.
