This annual volume presents an excellent review of the literature on 19 fields of medicine The material is presented in readable fashion and is excellently annotated. In many instances the comments of the editors of the individual sections add a personal touch which is helpful in evaluating the material presented. Certain sections, such as the one on infectious diseases, have summaries which would make valuable additions to all sections. The chapter on laboratory aids to diagnosis and therapy is actually a discussion on hematology rather than a presentation on laboratory diagnosis.

As this volume is primarily a review of the literature presented in an impartial fashion, personal expressions of opinion are minimized. This is an excellent reference volume to bring the reader up to date on recent developments in the specific entities included in this book.
