This clinical, anatomic and experimental treatise on the surgical treatment of infections of the hand and forearm is well done and clear. T. Wingate Todd endorses the anatomic accuracy of the anatomic portions and illustrations. The colored plates are excellent. Some of the anatomic illustrations are done in black and white with the opposing page in color. The photographs of infected hands do not tell the story as well as the excellent drawings do. Roentgenograms of the hand after injection of radiopaque material are included. The book furnishes a quick reference for the busy practitioner. Every general, industrial and orthopedic surgeon should be acquainted with its contents. It is only by means of anatomic knowledge, clinical research and experience that scientific treatment can be developed. Treatment is successful only as it is based on facts.
