Here is a pocket-size booklet, written in German, full of wise and useful information for the layman who is called on to live in the Tropics. Well-written by a good observer and an experienced physician, it deals, in five sections, with the climate, adaptation and general risk of disease in warm climates. A description of measures concerned with living conditions, nutrition, housing, servants and the hygienic rules to guide the care of children is followed by an account of preventive measures against infections and diseases in general. The briefing of the most important diseases encountered in the Tropics is excellent and absolutely up to date. This guide to healthful living around the Equator, which includes a good index, will prove most useful and is highly recommended.
