As may readily be conjectured from the title, this is a book which approaches the border line between science and general literature; indeed, it really steps over a little way into the territory of the latter, where it will doubtless have a good reception, such as it deserves. One can scarcely imagine a technical, scientific subject treated in a more delightfully interesting manner than this one has been. Dr. Prudden certainly has the faculty of making science racy for non-scientific readers. Although this little book is evidently designed for popular reading, it will be found to be replete with interest for the average medical reader as well.
