In this third edition the author has added measurably to his already highly comprehensive work. There is a new section of considerable length on the military aspect of the foot based on such facts and experiences as were collected during the last war. While the traumatic aspect of foot ailments is given extended consideration, it does not curtail a thorough and comprehensive treatment of other conditions such as the static and inflammatory ailments. Furthermore, subjects that are so easily overlooked in textbooks because they are presumably insignificant, such as infections and abnormalities of the toenail, foot hygiene, chilblain and frostbite, are thoroughly discussed and are a welcome addition to the surgeon who may be looking for real advice on the minor ailments of the foot and may find the usual textbook disappointing. The book is written with the same thoroughness that characterized the earlier editions.
