This is a comprehensive, scientific work of a man who has devoted his life to the subject, and who has his own ideas and knows how to express them. His knowledge of French, German and Italian has enabled him to review a great deal of the literature on massage. What particularly makes the book readable is the fact that Graham always has an eye open for the humorous, and the fact that his humor sometimes is turned into sharp satire does not make it less easy to read. Particularly good are the sections on the history of massage, on the mode of operation and on traumatic joint affections.
