This is an excellently arranged textbook. The printing is of such size as to make easy reading and the many illustrations add a great deal to understanding the text. The drawings are particularly well done. If criticism were to be given this phase, it would be that the x-ray reproductions on the whole do not come up to what we have been accustomed to seeing in British books. Many of the x-rays are not clear, but others are very good. We probably have been spoiled in the past with the excellence of British x-ray reproduction. The colored drawings are superior in quality. The book itself is written in typical, clear-cut British style and makes for very interesting reading. It is not too technical so that the book has definite application both to the medical student as well as to those on advanced training status and certainly is a good book
