This is an excellent book for the layman and answers most of his questions about illness in a concise and clear manner. The chapter on the eyes is well done. The only criticism which could be made is the emphasis which is placed on keratoplasty, to the extent of including pictures of the operative procedure. Although undoubtedly of great interest to the public, much useful information regarding eye care must have been eliminated in order to make room for this.
