This is the third edition of a deservedly popular work. The author has added to the volume from authoritative sources on coccidioidomycosis, rheumatic fever, epidemic diarrhea and the like so that the book approaches somewhat a textbook of medicine. Although what is said is worth while, it is a question whether too much or not enough has been said and whether the material may not be too much for such a volume. It gives a sparse report on clinical problems which are not considered completely enough. The detail has been carefully worked out and presented, and the author shows an obvious knowledge of up-to-date literature.
