Among the various books on nursing which have recently appeared this is the latest, and it appears to be fairly well adapted to its purposes. The arrangement perhaps is a little to be criticised. The question occurs to some of us as physicians whether the little knowledge of diseases given in the matter of the larger portion of this book is always a necessary part of the nurse's accomplishments. It is far from being complete, though in the main the information given seems to be correct. The description of the various special duties of the nurse comprises only a small portion of the work and some little nursing wrinkles that are taught in nursing schools are not mentioned. The appendix on sick-room cookery, though brief, is a useful addition.
