The appearance of this authoritative manual fills a recognized need for all clinical laboratory workers and internists. The make-up, typography, binding and size are attractive, and highly convenient and efficient. The colored plates and illustrations are definite additions to its practical value and usefulness. No clinical or military laboratory can possibly afford not to have it available.

The section on amebiasis occupies 114 of the 328 pages of text. This section is unusually well done, even for the author. The reader notes with pleasure the extremely systematic, practical and condensed discussions on ameba-culture and complement fixation. In this, as in all sections, the author's authoritative and direct critical evaluation of methods is excellent. It is possible that the clinician will value sigmoidoscopy in diagnosis more highly than does the author. Also it seems to me that stained and especially hematoxylin-stained preparations do not receive as much diagnostic credit as they deserve.
