In this edition there have been certain important revisions. Information on poliomyelitis is brought up to date, and the section on preventive and postoperative measures is added. There is also an addition to some of the technical part such as strapping. The book should be judged from the point of view of furnishing information on orthopedics for nurses rather than as a book on strictly nursing technic. In this respect the book is admirably suited for its purpose. The information is thorough and detailed enough to be of real practical use without going too much into theoretic considerations. The description of operations and their purposes is clear, concise and adequate for the instruction of nurses. This book is a leader in its line and should be a valuable and indispensable addition to any library for nurses.
