This volume fulfils well its purpose: to "inform the student and general practitioner of those things he should know to get the patient well." The book is practical and concise but does not omit essential details. It is unusually up to date. It is clear, easily readable and well organized; subheadings make finding desired information easy. For a book of this scope, especially good treatment has been given nasal allergy, headaches and neuralgias. Emphasis is on common conditions, but enough description of the rarer diseases is given to identify them.

There are many graphic illustrations, mostly drawings by the author. The volume should prove of great practical value to those for whom it was written.
