This contains a wealth of useful information presented in a practical and readily understood manner. The illustrations are excellent and well chosen; the text is brief yet broad enough to cover the subjects, which are comprehensively discussed. By the use of photographs and drawings the author has described methods of treatment and the types of apparatus employed in an ingenious manner. This book should be of especial value at the present time when a global war is in progress, but every physician will find information of pertinent value whether he is in the armed forces or in civilian practice. Fractures and orthopedic problems, intravenous therapy and injuries to the extremities are considered, and the book contains an extensive appendix showing surgical instruments and appliances.
