This carefully planned book not only covers the complete field of physical medicine but also has added interest by numerous clear illustrations for visual teaching. The theme is developed from simple subjects to those requiring more advanced knowledge of basic sciences. The chapter on climatotherapy and spa therapy gives a practical insight into the indications for these physical mediums. The chapters on heat, light and electricity reflect the broad experience of the author in research and use of these measures. The important details of massage, exercise and occupational therapy are included. Dr. Sidney Licht's excellent chapter on rehabilitation shows his realization of the importance of considering the patient as a total personality. Psychologic and physical factors are presented in their proper perspective.
