Here is a volume of sound advice, either for the physician or for the public, on the hygiene of middle age and the period past 60. It is well written, although somewhat symbolical in its choice of chapter headings: for example, red lights, falling ground and the last phase. "Red lights," in this instance, concerns the detection of the earliest symptoms of decay. The book is well printed in large type, which will not place too great a strain on the old who are likely to want to read the book. It is perhaps the most sound of some half dozen volumes for the elderly which have recently made their appearance.
