This book has been prepared primarily for the housewife and cook to enable them more adequately to prepare foods for the sick. In the present edition, additional dietaries suitable for maladies not contained in the previous editions have been included. Among these are the ketogenic diet and diets for nephritis. The first portion of the book outlines the meals to be employed in various conditions, while the second section is devoted to recipes and tables.

The value of the book for those in this country is limited by the inclusion in the meals of certain products not available. Trade preparations are liberally employed. Even with these limitations, the material will find a field of usefulness for those who must prepare food for the sick and convalescent. The physician may also find information of value to aid him in the planning of certain dietaries.
