Dr. Martini's textbook is pocket size, brief and concise. It contains a summary of the principles underlying physical examination. It gives the essential findings in the common pathological conditions of the chest and abdomen. The accessory aids in diagnosis, roentgenology and electrocardiography, are brought in from time to time in order to give the reader a more complete grasp of the subject. At times there seems to be a tendency to over simplification of points that are in reality obscure. It is essentially an undergraduate textbook.
