This is a practical office book that will be of interest primarily to the general practitioner and also to the student and intern. The described procedures are comparatively simple, and the book is easy to read and informative. Black and white drawings permit the reader to visualize the problem described and the method of treatment proposed with ease. A variety of fields is covered, such as otolaryngology, ophthalmology, gynecology, obstetrics, pediatrics, minor surgery, anesthesia, and physiotherapy. There are even descriptions of a small laboratory and a brief reference to roentgenography. Those who want details will have to seek books especially devoted to subjects that are covered briefly in this volume, but as a handy general reference source the reader should find this book invaluable, particularly if he recognizes its purpose and has other books to which he may refer.
