Handbook of Therapeutics

The second edition of this rather small, practical book, which "aims to supply the medical student with sufficient knowledge to treat disease rationally," has been somewhat enlarged to permit of revision of many articles in the light of more precise current knowledge. Among the new features included may be mentioned the articles on celiac disease and on sprue, the discussion of the use of phenylethylhydantoin in chorea, the ketogenic diet in urinary sepsis and in epilepsy, the high carbohydrate diet in diabetes, cortical extract in Addison's disease, and carbon dioxide in asphyxia and in whooping cough. Praiseworthy is the author's attempt to "present the truth stripped of unnecessary detail, and to give the student a clear conception of principles without obscuring his mind by a mass of detailed information that, after all, can be usefully acquired only at the bedside." This does not mean that he has eliminated all detail.
