BOOKS dealing with modern physics can often be divided into two classes. Into one category fall those which are conscious throughout of the reader's infirmities (real or imaginary), while in the other will be found those works—full of intellectual honesty—which face the facts and leave the aspirant to strike out for himself as best he may, even though he is certain to meet with heavy weather. Such a classification is reasonably well illustrated by the two books before us? into the first group goes the volume by Profs. Pauling and Goudsmit, and into the second that by Dr. Kronig.
