This is a short and concise manual on light therapy, and well illustrated. Attention is called to the cardinal points presented and to summarizing paragraphs by heavy marginal lines. The physics, biology and sources of light are ably discussed in clear and simple, though strictly scientific terms. The instructions given on "practice" and "methods" are somewhat of restricted value and application, because apparatus of German manufacture only are described. Chapter VI mentions more than 150 diseases, grouped under ten distinct classes, giving for each condition the type of light therapy indicated and the method, dosage and frequency of the application recommended, thus revealing the wide therapeutic application of light.
