KIRKUS REVIEW

A hopeful, helpful approach to the therapy of tuberculosis which is still the most important infectious disease even though it has dropped from first to seventh place as a killer. The importance of sanitarium treatment but the unimportance of climate; the relaxation of time values; rest- and the way to rest; planning your schedule; reading, writing, music, hobbies; the new concept and process of rehabilitation; the interplay of psychic factors, mental attitudes, morale; and finally once recovered- the avoidance of recurrences .. For the patient, this promotes a psychological adaptation to this illness which will be reassuring and beneficial.
