A calm and sane book, simple enough for anyone to understand, and practical in its suggestions of keeping fit through diet, innoculations, etc. Advice on medical checkovers, when to see a doctor, etc. Chart of children's diseases; weight tables; table for figuring pregnancy; vitamin and callorie tables. Appendix describing such things as blood pressure, basic metabolism, and so on down to the properly equipped medicine cabinet. Not a how-to-do book, with a few exceptions. A family information book on health habits and information. Well done.
