Physical diagnosis, in its broadest aspect, remains the basis for medical practice. It forms the foundation to which can be added detailed information reported voluminously in innumerable journals. Dr. Leopold's new edition of The Principles and Methods of Physical Diagnosis introduces this vast subject to medical students in a thoroughly satisfactory manner. By selection of subject matter, sufficient brevity and clear style, it affords one the opportunity to become acquainted with technics of examination and important signs of disease. Numerous pertinent illustrations amplify the text. Especially welcome is the section devoted to acoustical principles in the production of thoracic sounds.
