This medical encyclopedia is exactly what its title indicates. It is a popular encyclopedia of medical terms from abdomen to zyme—the latter short for enzyme or ferment. The articles are short, clearly written and informative. It is not a health book or a textbook. It is exactly what its name indicates, that is, a popular encyclopedia. It should be useful in elementary and secondary schools as a student reference book and in teacher training colleges. It deserves a place in the library of the home where there is interest in matters pertaining to health and medicine.
