An unusual and a good feature in a book presumably devoted to medical treatment is the space given to the subject of diet. It is to be regretted, however, that the author has not devoted more time to the consideration of diet from the scientific point of view, rather than to permit himself to recommend so many proprietary meat juices, foods, etc. The drugs that are mentioned, however, are mainly pharmacopeial (British), fewer preparations being recommended than is usual by a British author. Aside from the criticism as to proprietary foods, we find the book is one to be commended as a helpful guide in the treatment of non-surgical diseases.
