This edition of a useful manual of clinical treatment looks smaller than the first edition, but actually it has even more facts on its thinner pages. Although the content is similar to that of the first edition, with chapters on the general aspects of medical management and then, serially throughout the rest of the book, nearly all the common diseases, grouped according to etiology or system, there is a great increase in new detail on certain subjects. This is particularly true for the new antibiotics and for corticotrophin (ACTH) and cortisone. The book is not at all for systematic reading but is rather an extremely handy summary of techniques and treatments. Both the beginner and the experienced practitioner in medicine will find it a most satisfactory guide.
