This little work appears to be a convenient and fairly good description of massage manipulations and also contains a general treatment of the anatomy, a knowledge of which will be of use to the masseur or masseuse. In fact, a large portion of the book is taken up with this and the part on massage is comparatively brief. The average manipulator will, however, probably find in it all that is absolutely necessary, though there are special matters which are scarcely mentioned. The instructions given are founded upon the results of many years' experience both in teaching and practical work, which fact should be in itself to some extent a guarantee of its value.
