KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of maxims which feature the wisest words, in shortest form, of the famous surgeon and which although derived from medical practice and experience, often have a broader context which can be extended to others. These aphorisms deal with students and their teachers, with hospitals and universities, with observation and investigation, with patients- and women, with travel and reading, and although many of them are choice, none of them have the sparkle of his more brilliant predecessors in this form, and some- (""Remember lues in tumors of the neck"") can hardly qualify. A medical market here.
