As stated in the foreword, the author has attempted to collect methods of laboratory procedure for investigations on the urine useful in clinical practice. He has devoted much space to the clinical interpretation of these laboratory results. This experience has been gained as a result of ten years' service as clinical pathologist to a hospital majoring in the care of patients with urinary tract diseases. The volume is well printed on good paper, adequately indexed and contains excellent photographs, some of which are presented as colored plates. Many references to original articles are given and the volume should serve as an excellent guide to laboratory workers. Errors in proof reading are nil, although on page 21 hippuric acid is referred to as a conjugated product of benzoic acid and glycerin. However, this compound is described correctly later. The book is stronger in the section devoted to microscopic and bacteriologic technics
