This book has become the standard American textbook on autopsy technique. It is, therefore, not surprising that a fourth edition has come out with some valuable additions. A few illustrations and comments have been added to various chapters, and the problem of unexpected deaths and legal examination receives more emphasis. The technique of autopsy of bodies containing radioactive isotopes is discussed, as well as autopsy tissue banking techniques. The new chapter on do's and don'ts gives evidence of the great experience of the author. The historical introduction by Dr. Sidney Farber is a pleasure to read. This book is well illustrated and well written.
