This book is a manual of methods in diagnostic bacteriology written principally for interns, medical students and student technicians. The book is divided into three parts: The first part is concerned with bacteriologic diagnosis and consists of six chapters, the second part deals with serologic diagnosis and is divided into two chapters, while the third part is concerned with mediums, stains and staining technic, reagents and tests and is composed of three chapters. There are no illustrations, and only one side of the page contains printed matter, leaving the other side for notes. There are no theoretical discussions or explanations, the material being confined to explicit instructions. Many tables are included in which related organisms are differentiated. The book should prove very useful to diagnostic laboratories and to the group for which it was written.
