This is an attractive, well compiled, pleasingly written volume which will be especially useful for medical students and orthopedic practitioners. It will make an excellent text for nurses and social service workers.
The two paragraphs written by Dr. Edgar F. Allen on the tenth page are appropriate, accurately and concisely describing the text.
Dr. McBride's text is admirably adaptable for the lay person; the subject matter takes up only the types of orthopedic conditions that are seen every day and omits the rarer conditions that are only of academic interest. The language is exceedingly well chosen, and is simple, only words and constructions easily understood being used. Technical problems and details of treatment are not discussed. The illustrations are excellent; they are clearcut and help immensely in elucidating the author's discussion.
