This volume differs from most other textbooks of medicine in its condensed discussions and in the fact that it includes material on diseases of the skin, ear, eye and other specialties which the author and his collaborators believe to constitute a necessary minimum of the knowledge of the internist or general practitioner. The book is excellently illustrated. While many details have been sacrificed to simplification and space requirements, it may be anticipated that the book will be popular with medical students and many practitioners.
