The thoroughness of this book, its detailed references to the literature, and its mass of detailed information regarding all of the unusual conditions of the new-born make it a splendid reference book. The chapter on the feeding of the new-born is especially good in its recital of the many difficulties that stand in the way of successful nursing and the best way to overcome them. The chapter on breast injuries and diseases of the alimentary and respiratory tracts is very complete. The same can be said of practically all of the other chapters. All the way through one sees the work of an author who has mastered his subject and presented it in a pleasing objective way. The illustrations greatly enhance the value of the book in that they show at a glance unusual conditions which one can understand much more easily by an illustration than by a long description.
