KIRKUS REVIEW

This handsome, boxed, four volume set has been prepared by nineteen doctors and surgeons- under the sagis of Dr. Rothensberg- and consists of 7500 questions and answers on seemingly all the ills to which the flesh is heir. It is a sturdy but attractive piece of bookmaking with large type and open pages; with many black and white photos- and some color plates (for a readier identification of skin rashes); and a complete mannikin in natural colors with cut-outs. Each volume is indexed individually, and the four volumes deal with the subject matter in alphabetical order. The special problems of childhood and child rearing, adolescence, old age, etc. are considered, and throughout, the approach is direct and very definite. While there is always a tremendous interest in securing popularized, medical information- it still may be difficult to secure a market with a purchasing power equal to its curiosity and concern.
