Chandler was fond of alleging that he wrote a new book as a means of learning thoroughly a subject about which he knew little. Thus the first edition of this book, which was aimed at the general public, led him into the field of parasitology. Finding that it was more widely used as a textbook, he modified the second edition for that purpose. Successive editions have become increasingly technical without losing the superior readability and charm. Read is commendably carrying on this tradition. As usual the new edition is up-to-date. The necessary deletions to make way for new material have in general been wisely chosen. The increase in size amounts to only a score of pages. A new type face, which appears to take more space but actually does not, is a considerable improvement, especially in the fine print such as the keys.
