This is a practical book which should be invaluable not only to nurses, but to physicians. The recipes are simple, and any household could furnish the ingredients. The articles on diet in special diseases are taken principally from the recognized text-books on dietetics. One part of the book is devoted to dietaries of various hospitals. Diet in infancy is given considerable space, various formulas being given. The appendix, "Practical Suggestions for the Nurse in the Sick-Room," is especially commendable.
