This is probably the most complete treatise on inebriety by an American author. The whole subject is considered scientifically, not sensationally, as so often in treatises on inebriety. The author's recommendations of treatment are judicious and will [ill] helpful to all who need aid in the management of this disease. No subject is more important but, unfortunately, like other common diseases, it interests many practitioners less than the uncommon. What can be done for the inebriate by prope medical advice and guidance is not as universally appreciated as it should be. Moreover, institutional treatment is not a necessity in every case and all practitioners should equip themselves properly to guide patients to recovery of past the hazards which beset the path of so many. A careful study of this book will reward those who do not feel fully equipped for the care of the inebriate.
