This little book is remarkable for its completeness. The essentially pediatric subjects are covered in considerable detail. Discussions of infant feeding, enuresis and rheumatic fever, for instance, are quite complete. As evidence of its completeness, cevitamic acid is suggested for scurvy, and in Hirschsprung's disease the author states that sympathetic ramisection has been successfully performed. The consideration of blood diseases is rather superficial. There is an appendix with methods of preparing foods, prescriptions used, and incubation periods of various acute infectious diseases. There are also various tables. This little book gives considerable accurate information for the money and is easily read.
