The pages are multigraphed and are bound in loose leaf form between paper covers. The volume contains a complete list of therapeutic diets such as are used in a modern hospital. Diets are given in actual food portions as well as in caloric units, and in most instances sample menus are included. Because of its attention to practical detail, this collection should be helpful to the private practitioner in the construction of diets for use in the home. It presupposes, however, a knowledge of the principles involved in the formulation and use of these diets. It is suggested that brief discussion of these considerations preceding each type of diet, as has been attempted in the case of the diabetic diets, would render the volume more suitable for wide distribution.
