This is not intended as a complete treatise, but the clarity of thought and simplicity of style of the author make it profitable and enjoyable reading. Abdominal emergencies, subacute abdominal diseases and chronic abdominal and pelvic diseases are the subjects covered. The work ends with a brief chapter on postoperative complications and treatment. The bulk of material covered represents diagnosis; little attention is devoted to treatment except in the numerous case reports cited. The book is worthy of a place in the library of every practitioner.
