It is a difficult task to write a book on surgical diagnosis in little more than 200 pages, yet this the author has accomplished. Twenty-two short chapters cover the entire field of surgery not exhaustively, it is true, yet sufficiently to be of much help in making a direct and differential diagnosis of almost any average surgical condition. The material is accurate and simply presented. The book is attractively printed and has a number of line drawings and illustrations which enhance the value of the text.
