The author of this little volume says in his preface "It has been my aim to set down only what are the salient features of the subject which must be known ere the student presents himself for examination." The surgeon actively engaged inpractice tends to forget the beginner's point of view and what a tremendous volume of information he is expected to acquire and master in a few short years. Volumes such as this, concisely and clearly written, though necessarily dogmatic, are helpful guides to what is important and essential. To indicate this clearly and in an interesting and logical fashion is a praiseworthy achievement, and the author has accomplished it admirably.
