The "index of symptoms method" of writing a textbook has been somewhat discredited in the past, but Dr. Davison has overcome its defects and produced a really valuable compendium. The explanation of success in this case is not far to seek: The writer knows what he is talking about, the literature is thoroughly covered and the style has clearness, force and precision. As a vade mecum and an aid to quick orientation as to diagnosis and procedure, it should be (as the need for a second edition shows) invaluable not only to the pediatrician but to the general physician.
