This book is an outgrowth of the "Lectures of the Cook County Hospital Quiz Course," which are given to medical students preparing for the competitive examinations for internship in the Cook County Hospital, Chicago. Many subjects in medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and special fields are discussed briefly in outline form: etiology, pathology, symptomatology, complications, differential diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. This form occasionally gives rise to mild absurdities such as that under treatment of heart disease, where the first two entries under the subhead "Active Treatment" are "Absolute Bed Rest" and "Sleep!" The book contains a great deal of simply presented information on many disease conditions. It will appeal to those who like to study according to the outline or quiz method.
