This author does not leave any room for doubt as to his opinion of the use of tobacco. While his strong feeling on the subject may be justified, his indiscriminating and unanalytic amassing of testimony and his lack of judicial serenity tend to make the reader discount the statements of supposed facts. Since there is a real need for a scientifically authoritative statement of the injury and waste caused by tobacco, it is to be regretted that this book is not more scientific in its citations and more restrained in its style.
