This book is bound to become a classic. Justus Lehmann is well known for the research he has done and for the research he has stimulated. One of these areas is the scientific investigation of heat as a therapeutic modality. He is, therefore, eminently qualified to write and edit a textbook on this subject.
Although this is called the third edition, it is an entirely new book. There is little similarity to the old book, but there is a nice link. The book starts off with a chapter on "History of Therapeutic Heat and Cold" by the late Sidney Licht. Sidney Licht was the editor not only of the previous edition of this volume but of the whole series of the Rehabilitation Medicine Library. John V. Basmajian, the new editor of the new editions of this library, is to be congratulated for having chosen such a brilliant and practical scientist,
