This compilation of articles that have appeared in Today's Health in recent years is popularly priced in order to encourage wide dissemination. The articles are grouped in sections dealing with nutrition, rest, common health problems, the heart, cancer, tuberculosis, mental health, and family problems. These articles are well selected and should acquaint the lay reader, for whom the volume is intended, with modern thought on many important phases of health. The text is interspersed with cartoons and epigrams also culled from the pages of Today's Health. The book should find wide and enthusiastic acceptance among the general reading public. There is no index, but in a work of this kind an index is hardly necessary.
