Dr. Vaughan's contributions to the literature of allergy are widely circulated. This little handbook will be most useful to any patient who suffers more or less with the symptoms of sensitization to foods or other substances. The illustrations, which include a number of excellent cartoons by Webster, and the humor of the text make it among the most readable of all the available books in the field concerned. There are tables of questions and answers which are most useful in replying to the many problems that arise so frequently in the practice of doctors who care for these patients. Notwithstanding the effort of the articles to simplify these explanations, the book will mean little to those who have not had a reasonably good general education.
