This is a small brochure which is quite up-to-date in the handling of the question of nutrition of infants. It begins with chapters on digestion in general, and lays special emphasis on the fact that digestion takes place not only in the gastro-intestinal tract, but also in the cells.
While there is no bibliography attached, the writer shows a familiarity with the literature, which is unquestioned when one reads the text. This is especially true of his familiarity with the American literature, to which on certain subjects he pays great tribute.
The book, on the whole, is a very clear exposition on the subject, not over-burdened with scientific facts and is quite readable.
