To physicians interested in dietetics, Strauss needs no introduction. Previous editions of this book have been favorably received, and this edition is an improvement over the others. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the volume is the constant recurrence of references to the lessons of the war. It would seem that never before has such an opportunity for the study of mass action of food been obtained. An interesting contrast to this point of view is noticed in the repeated warnings as to necessity of individualization in the treatment of patients with diabetes. One need not agree with the author's point of view to appreciate the generally sound common sense which is the keynote of the volume. The discussion of obesity is particularly interesting. Diabetes is handled practically, as it was in earlier editions; we miss the newer American studies, yet we wonder which will stand the test of time.
