Dr. McKenzie has succeeded admirably in his effort to present the subject of physical education in an effective way to three hitherto widely separated groups of people, school teachers, teachers of physical training, and physicians. The recent rapid growth of an appreciation of the place and value in an educational system of physical training and as an important adjuvant in preventive and curative medicine makes this book particularly timely and opens for it a wide field of usefulness.
The subject-matter is well arranged, and the various topics are treated in a very readable way, which is popular and untechnical without sacrificing accuracy. The amount of space devoted to each subject is necessarily small in a book that covers so wide a range as this. The illustrations are numerous and bear close and helpful relation to the text. The pictures are well chosen, instructive and artistic.
