This volume dealing with "Another Man's Poison" constitutes an excellent graduate course on how to handle chronic alcoholics. From cover to cover it is packed with interesting information concerning the physiology and toxicology of alcohol, the psychology and pseudo-philosophy of the alcoholic patient and the ways and means for the intensive psychical reëducation of the victim of alcoholism. No thinking physician can read it without deepening his understanding of the problems of alcoholism and increasing his ability to cope with them, for the treatment suggested is directed not so much to the disease itself as to its underlying causes.
