Occupational therapy is occupying the attention of physicians more and more. This is particularly true of those in hospitals. The value of occupational therapy has long been known and utilized in hospitals for patients with nervous and mental diseases, but its value in general medical, surgical, orthopedic, cardiac and tuberculous disorders has not been given the appreciation that it deserves. This book, by William Rush Dunton, who is a pioneer in the subject, is timely. The value of different types of occupational therapy in the various special fields of medicine is described. The book is particularly valuable to physicians in institutions and general hospitals.
