This was written by two well qualified authors, whose purpose was to utilize knowledge from many fields and to indicate correct posture and corrective measures in all types of individuals, the nonathletic as well as the athletic. There is an excellent discussion on the subject of evolutionary and environmental influences as they are related to postural defects. The material was well chosen and has been presented in an interesting manner. The illustrations are good. The double exposure films and the line drawings are instructive. Selective exercises are presented in detail and illustrated in order to facilitate their use in schools, camps, associations and clubs. The material was taken from examinations of corrective measures used with the students in Yale University, Choate School, Storm King School and Camp Marienfeld over a period of four years. A study of the environmental influences may shed definite light on the causation of postural defects.
