This book is for the layman and deals with "the one subject which every fair-minded person admits should be taught thoroughly—namely, how to keep healthy..." The way in which this subject is handled by the various authors who contribute to this work is eminently sane, catholic and generally admirable. To the chapters on the hygiene of the digestive apparatus, of the skin and its appendages, of the vocal and respiratory apparatus, of the ear, of the eye, of the brain and nervous system and on physical exercise that appeared in the previous editions have been added ones on body-posture and domestic hygiene. There is also an appendix, and a glossary of such technical terms as have been unavoidably used.
