In the introduction to this book is the statement, "The continually increasing amount of space given in the press to medical articles testifies to the unquenchable thirst of American readers for such information. In mass-circulated magazines alone, some 450 medical stories were published last year." The editors have attempted to quench this thirst by collecting in this volume 66 articles on medical subjects that originally appeared in This Week Magazine. The articles are grouped into three sections: "Keeping Healthy Day by Day," "Special Situations and Problems," and "Disease and Your Body." The subjects extend from allergies to virus and from anemia to weather. Each essay is by an authority in the field, including men serving in the various bureaus of the American Medical Association. All are written in a clear, simple, and interesting manner and show a remarkable consistency in form and structure, an example of good editing. This volume
