This edition presents material that is interesting, well organized and compact. It deals with problems that confront the physical therapist at various times. War injuries are not treated as fully in other textbooks. The divisions for each case such as etiology, pathologic changes, symptoms, after-effects and treatment give a vivid picture of the case. The physical treatment is defined and, if one is interested in that phase mainly, the book will prove to be a valuable source of information. Under treatment the subdivisions on precautions, prevention and remedial measures, treatment of specialized cases and treatment of severe cases are helpful. The illustrations are good and the explanations of the photographs are clear. The illustrations selected go well with the material and can readily make the reader understand what the author desires to explain. They also reflect the effect of movement and activity.
