So far as the reviewer is aware, this is the only book that has been published in recent years dealing exclusively with hydrotherapy. Its objective is to present in concise detail the technic of hydriatic procedures that have proved practicable in the Massachusetts Department of Mental Diseases. The material is divided into four parts. The first is for the benefit of nurses, instructors and hydrotherapeutists; the second for hydrotherapeutists; the third for physicians, and the last, for superintendents. There are ninety-two illustrations, practically all of them original. The subject is well presented, and the illustrations are everything that is desired. This work should prove to be of the utmost help.
