With so many excellent manuals already on the market, any new contribution to this field should possess some exceptional quality to justify its presence. In this manual the author seeks, in the earlier chapters, to give the patient a more complete understanding of the disease and the principles which underlie its treatment than do other texts of this type. These chapters are excellent and should serve their purpose well. Particularly good are the two in which a comparison is made for the patient of the working of the human engine in health and in diabetes. The remaining chapters differ little from similar ones in other publications of this type, except for the descriptions of the Line-Ration system of R. W. Lawrence and the Five-Gram Diet scheme of L. A. Harrison. These systems are little used in this country.
