This is the fourth reprinting of this manual on first aid since May 1941, a record which speaks for the timeliness of the subject as well as for the quality of the contents. The arrangement is conventional, beginning with chapters on the general principles of first aid, case taking, diagnosis and the structure of the human body. The latter, although supplemented in later chapters by further description and illustrations, seems rather too abbreviated. There is more emphasis on bandaging in this book than in some of its contemporaries. The final chapter is devoted to training in first aid—a sort of outline of a first aid course. There is an adequate index.
