This book is known to physicians by repeated issues since 1895. The sixth edition is fully revised and rewritten to meet the most up-to-date principles in the care of the expectant mother, infants and young children. The author anticipates the eager questions of the anxious mother, with many simple practical suggestions. In the chapter on "Exercise and training," without direct reference, the author recognizes the influence of the freudians, and cautions against ghost stories and grim as well as Grimm's fairy tales. To write a chapter on the sick baby for those not medically trained is obviously a difficult task. Much of the material in this section, because of its technical nature, might well be omitted without serious injury to the ultimate purpose of the book. The appendix contains numerous practical formulas and directions for physical therapy.
