This book is written for nurses. It is well outlined, concise and complete. Only the material essential to the nurse is discussed in any particular disease, and enough physiology and pathology is included to make things well understood. The therapy in some cases seems as though it might be a little misleading, as many drugs and procedures are mentioned or discussed which probably are of little value. The book, however, has been carefully written and will rank among the best textbooks for nurses.
