This is a medium sized, flexible leather bound volume, consisting of twenty-one chapters and an index, each chapter of which has been contributed by a well qualified specialist. It was prepared particularly for use by general practitioners and students of medicine, whose "usual attitude toward preventive medicine is, of course, commendatory but not exactly enthusiastic"; also, it has been written primarily to arouse their interest in preventive medicine and periodic health examinations, thereby meeting a demand which the public has been educated to make. Closer cooperation by the general practitioner and specialist with health boards, school authorities, community social agencies, etc., is stressed.

Well written, avoiding technical terms and carefully compilated, it fills a distinct need and should prove a useful guide.
