Wilder's book, already a classic in its field, having first appeared in 1921, now comes out in the ninth edition. The same general format is followed and the contents are much as in previous editions, but, as Dr. Wilder states in the preface, he is now inclined to be more liberal in dietary recommendations and to advise somewhat less rigidity than formerly in the control of glycosuria. These changes, of course, apply only to those patients who are taking insulin. This little volume remains, as before, very useful for both physician and patient.
