This is a surgery for beginners. It dwells on surgical diagnosis, and omits all operative technic except for such simple procedures as ingrown toe-nail and circumcision, which students might have occasion to do in a dispensary. Especially good are the paragraphs on the physical examination in hip disorders. Certain measurements are necessary, and the inferences drawn from such measurements are simple; yet most authors make this chapter so involved as to be a pons asinorum for the student. The only thing that detracts from the value of the book is the lack of a complete index. The printing is good, the language is clear, and the descriptions are supplemented by numerous illustrations.
