This is a good manual for nurses. Nearly one-fifth of its contents is devoted to elementary physiology and psychology —a commendable feature of the book, the student being thus enabled to follow the author intelligently. The treatment is discussed in different chapters both from the physician's and the nursing points of view. On the whole, the subject is handled satisfactorily from the nursing aspect, but the physician who expects much information will be disappointed. The many illustrations have been borrowed from standard text-books on psychiatry and appear in poor print, whereas fewer but original drawings might have contributed much to improve the typographic appearance of the book.
