The title almost expresses the character of this volume. It is written by a surgeon under a non de plume and is essentially a collection of anecdotes from medical practice, offering for the lay reader in this way educational material in an easily absorbable medium. There is not a sustained interest throughout the book but the casual reader will find that it offers so much of interest that he is likely to proceed gradually throughout the entire volume.
