This booklet is packed full of sound advice for the tuberculous patient from one who has been through the mill. It has a special appeal in its brevity, its coverage of pertinent information and advice and its all-around excellence of quality. It is easily readable and may serve both the well read and those of more limited cultural attainments. The message is punctuated by a few well placed and impressive caricatures. There is also a useful bibliography for tuberculous patients which in reality will serve every type of human mentality.
