This is an ambitious treatise and a number of the sections have been prepared by specialists in particular branches. Some of these are very good. There is of necessity in such a large book on diet considerable overlapping and repetition. The principal section (Part II) arranges the various diseases, for convenience, in alphabetic order. Each disease is first the subject of a general discussion, after which sample menus are given, followed by general suggestions. Thus, for Addison's disease, it is recommended that the diet be designed to increase gastric acidity and the oral use of dilute "muriatic acid" is advised.
