The various fields of medicine and surgery are covered concisely by an impressive group of subeditors. Since the whole book is only 332 pages, the keynote has been condensation. Ophthalmology has been well reviewed by Manuel L. Stillerman, who has laid special emphasis on retrolental fibroplasia; the use of cortisone, hydrocortisone, and corticotropin; intraocular acrylic lenses, and preventive ophthalmology.
The book is presumably for the use of the general physician, and the only criticism that can be raised is how useful a book of this kind is to a reader with limited knowledge in all the fields treated.
