This can be regarded as an excellent manual if one keeps in mind that it is designed for the use of interested lay persons who have time to devote to study and to work in the cause of cancer control. It should not, however, be used outside the circles of interested workers. Its greatest usefulness will be among those who have at least a rudimentary knowledge of biologic science. It is prepared for the Women's Field Army of the American Society for the Control of Cancer, Inc., and is distributed free by that society, which may be addressed at 350 Madison Avenue, New York 17.
