This edition shows a number of additions, which are a distinct improvement. In many respects it is more difficult to write a textbook of medicine for nurses than for medical students; while it is desirable for the nurse to know as much medicine as possible, the limitations of education and time make the problem of what she is to learn largely one of judicious restriction. The greater part of the nurse's instruction should be in those diseases in which the nursing service is of most importance. A careful perusal of this book would seem to indicate that the author has adopted this general point of view. The explanations are clear and sufficiently concise, and the author has definitely succeeded in picking out the really salient points, not bewildering the student nurse with unnecessary detail. It should make an acceptable textbook for schools of nursing.
