Dr. Chamberlain has condensed into 491 pages the cursory presentation of many diseases and situations. The subjects included would ordinarily constitute several texts, for example: principles of bacteriology, dietetics, general nursing, materia medica and pharmacology. It is doubtful if these sections add to the value of the book, since they lack the details essential to an understanding of even basic facts.
The relative significance of the disease, it seems, has not determined its prominence. Cholera, hydrophobia and plague, though checked as less important, are given as much space as rheumatic fever and diabetes; smallpox is given twice as much.
