This book is of peculiar importance in that it takes up and discusses the relative value of the more important newer remedies of the vast number which have been placed on the market. As a rule, the general practitioner gains his acquaintance with these newer remedies only in published formulas and prescriptions which in many instances gain their entrance into medical literature through the advertising columns. The author divides the several preparations into groups according to their actions and uses, including in this classification nutritive alterants, blood alterants, mineral medication, respiratory alterants, renal alterants, vasomotor alterants, opotherapy, serotherapy, nerve alterants, antipyretics and antiseptics. Space can not be given to the discussion of these different groups. To the physician who wishes a more thorough comprehension of the relative value of the newer preparations than can be obtained in the current literature, this book can be safely recommended.
