When one considers the quality of the editorial board, it is not surprising that the Year Book of Medicine has become an almost indispensable asset to busy internists and general practitioners. Naturally, abstracts of all the significant articles of the period May, 1952, to May, 1953, are not included, but certainly most of the new developments in the internal medicine field are presented in a few representative communications. The average reader is grateful for the editorial comments and wishes that more of them appeared. Abstracts of important periodical publications in the fields of infections, diseases of the chest, blood and blood-forming organs, heart and blood vessels and kidneys, the digestive system, and disorders of metabolism are included. The book is worth reading in its entirety.
