This book is one that should be placed in the hands of every walking patient suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis, for it shows the pulmonary invalid how he may make and maintain a modern sanatorium of his home, and how recovery may be hastened in many cases. The exact relation of the title to the context of the book may well be questioned for it not only contains an account of what a consumptive should not do but what he should do.

The suggestions are recognized as pertinent and sensible and if carried out by all of the class for whom intended, would greatly diminish the scourge.
