The author with the aid of several collaborators on specialized subjects has written an extremely practical book on the baby. A definite attempt was made to limit the material discussed to the period of infancy and, although this plan has been faithfully adhered to, many of the discussions concern conditions that affect the older child. The book covers the field of neonatal care, infant feeding, congenital defects, infectious diseases and general pediatric subjects. The chapters on celiac disease and tuberculosis are well treated. Emphasis has been laid on the description of congenital defects and the time at which treatment should be instituted. Such subjects as pyloric stenosis, cleft palate, harelip and ophthalmia neonatorum have been treated in detail. This book should be of value to the general practitioner, the obstetrician, the medical student and the pediatrician who wants a rapid reference work at hand.
