This is a relatively simple and lucid description of the main pathological conditions. It is one of several American textbooks presenting the subject in an elementary manner readily comprehended by medical students. The mode of presentation differs from that of such authors as Paling Wright and Sir Howard Florey, who cover the same subject matter in a more detailed and scientific manner. The book contains no photomicrographs and no bibliographic substantiations of the numerous facts and generalizations presented. Whether such a book is considered adequate for medical students deer or not in his opinion medical students are to be pends on the philosophy of the teacher and whethconsidered as potential clinical observers or as future run-of-the-mill practitioners of medicine.
