Medical books nowadays seem to follow the pattern set by the "Systems" of some years back. An aspiring author finds his projected subject too large and fluctuant for his own capabilities. He thereupon asks the assistance of experts in individual fields, and publishes the resulting contributions. Dr. Gordon has enlisted the services of 11 other authors and has himself contributed seven out of the 23 articles in this book. He set out, he says in his preface, to produce a "concise and practical handbook on ambulatory and hospital therapy of the commoner eye diseases," and this goal he has reached in an eminently satisfactory manner. The work is up to date, and the reader will find discussions of modalities as recent as cryotherapy, the use of thiabendazole, and irrigation with fibrinolysin. This is probably the best book of its kind available today.
