This book consists of 55 articles by well-known British clinicians on medical problems commonly encountered by the general practitioner. Some of the topics discussed are acute throat, management of the premature baby, the influenzal diseases, causes and treatment of eczema, cardiac neuroses, acute abdominal disease, infant feeding, and the management of diabetes mellitus. The articles were originally published two years ago in the British Medical Journal and were published in book form to provide a review of established practices and to present newer advances in a simple, straightforward fashion. The book is well printed and generously illustrated. Practicing physicians and students alike should enjoy its contents.
