This is a greatly augmented and improved as well as revised edition of the textbook first issued under this title in 1944. The authors bring to it their broad experience with healthy as well as sick persons, to produce a fully rounded, well-organized, expensively documented, and, at the same time, interestingly written textbook for nurses. The discussion suggestions that follow each chapter and the references and reading suggestions recommend the book highly to teachers in training schools for nurses. The book is well illustrated with pictographs, drawings, charts, and tables. It covers the entire scope of personal and community health, including quackery, cultism, health in school and on the job, and the role of government in public health, with a glimpse into the future. Particularly valuable are the chapters on sex life and on the diseases of advancing age. This book can be recommended without reservation as a basic textbook
