This is a pot-boiler, a compilation of various types of physical therapy and their application in the treatment of nervous disorders. The types of case range from intracranial tumors to Volkmann's contracture and hysteria. No section of the book receives adequate treatment or a critical evaluation of the results. The methods of application of the treatment are discussed too briefly to be of any real value, and the book resolves itself into a compilation of what has been attempted in the way of physical therapy in nervous disorders. Not the least impressive are fifty pages in the back devoted to advertising publications by Masson.
