This is a textbook written expressly for use in nurses' training schools. There are many books on the market for this purpose, and more appear each year. However, this is the best that has come to our attention. It is written in a readable style, perhaps at times becoming rather too "popular," but the author has limited his discussions to subjects of interest to nurses and has not extended them beyond the capacity of his audience. It is doubtful whether the use of an "infection equation" aids in clarifying the discussion of body resistance to disease. The drawings of fields as seen under the microscope are somewhat startling. The author admits that they are "overdrawn"—far too mild a term. A chapter on hemocytology might well be included in some future edition. It is a pleasure to recommend the book.
