This is a highly condensed summary of the significant points in differential diagnosis. It is printed clearly on excellent paper and the illustrations, many of which are diagrammatic drawings, are ample and well chosen. The color plates, especially those depicting blood smears, are of the usual excellence associated with German printing. The book is the first volume of a three volume work (the second and third volumes to appear during 1936-1937) and includes discussion of the differential diagnosis of the anemias, hemorrhagic diatheses, leukemias, myeloid diseases, mediastinal and lymph node disorders, the common throat infections and diseases of the spleen, liver and gallbladder. It is presumed that the other fields of internal medicine will be considered in the succeeding volumes. Naegeli, a master of medicine, is unusually precise and brief. There is great stress placed on the chemical and morphologic changes of the blood and perhaps somewhat too little emphasis
