Draper writes with the inspiration of his own realization of the importance of the subject. He urges on the medical student careful study, because of the likelihood of medicolegal complications in the first case undertaken in his practice. Draper feels that not enough attention is paid to this subject in medical colleges. The reader finds in this book the sympathy of a man of wide experience and most practical ways of viewing things. The book has been carefully kept within reasonable limits, and except for the departments of toxicology and psychiatry will be found a full text-book on medicolegal affairs.
