The new collection of just over 300 "Selected Questions and Answers" chosen from the JAMA columns of 1966 presents a wide range of posers which are tackled by about as many specialists. Nearly 30% of the material concentrates on cardiovascular, ophthalmic, obstetric, neurologic, and medicolegal problems as well as medical ethics. The balance of the issue offers one sort of tidbit or another to a variety of readers.
Incorporation of a full subject and author index in this second edition enables one to find quickly the morsels scattered throughout its pages— a distinct improvement. Despite the number of cooks who prepared the menu, the fare is generally quite palatable and worth recommending.
