One can scarcely picture a more ambitious undertaking nor one which comes closer to realization than that undertaken by the author in this work. In the space of 1,169 pages he not only covers practically every disease known to internal medicine but has space in which to include a well rounded discussion of psychoses and psychoneurosis.

It is also a surprise but a pleasant one, to find a section on the diseases of the skin. The internist may believe that he may choose the limitations of his knowledge but it is otherwise with the patient. The patient does not expect to be sent to a dermatologist for every skin lesion which seems simple to him. This section gives all of the common skin diseases which one is likely to encounter together with well chosen illustrations.

Although the book is supposed to deal only with fundamentals almost any section covers the subject very thoroughly and in some instances to a surprising degree.
