Eleven essays, a large number of short articles in alphabetic sequence by topic, 18 didactic "units," and a closing first-aid handbook give the layman a broad view of what is going on in medicine, what he or she should know to be well-informed on some common disease problems, and how to provide home care for minor and major emergencies. Very effectively illustrated; a notable feature is the group of portraits by Karsh (of such eminent persons as William Boyd, Carl Jung, Alfred Blalock). With its detailed index, this annual is a good supplement to update adult-level encyclopedias.
