This small volume is apparently a popular text among students and practitioners in Britain, as indicated by the appearance of six editions since 1933. The present edition has been thoroughly revised and brought up to date. The text is arranged systematically, although, in contrast to the usual practice, infant care and feeding are discussed in the last chapter. In content, the scope of the book is exceptionally inclusive for such a small volume. The treatment of the various subjects is necessarily sketchy and therefore is frequently of little value.

Several points of variation from American opinion are worthy of mention. Laryngotracheobronchitis, as such, is not mentioned, laryngitis stridulosa apparently having a place comparable to croup. The gravity of this disease is not stressed, and treatment is virtually ignored. Lobar pneumonia is mentioned as the most common lung infection in childhood, above bronchitis and bronchopneumonia, which is certainly not the case
