In line with the trend in medical education in this country, the authors have combined the subjects of obstetrics and gynecology in one book. Also in accordance with present custom in the preparation of books for nurses, this book represents the combined effort of a physician and a nurse, both of whom are leaders in their field. The book is well written and its thirty-four chapters contain the essential facts which nurses should know about obstetrics and gynecology. The value of the book is greatly enhanced by the illustrations (one is repeated), which are highly instructive. Even though the book does not contain as much information as some other books on obstetrics for nurses, it will nevertheless admirably serve the purpose for which it was written.
