Almost every one thinks he knows what rheumatism is. Practically every one complains on occasions that he is suffering with its twinges. This volume is planned for the layman, and should do much to inform people about the various types of disease commonly called rheumatism and the methods of medical control. The authors have apparently been at great pains to present their material in simple language, and they accompany it with a glossary indicating their inability to discuss the subject without technical terms. A glossary is a nuisance, and is probably best avoided by defining each of these technical terms as it is used and repeating the definitions on occasion until they are familiar to the reader.
