THIS is a general guide to the use of penicillin and is intended mainly for students, general practitioners and junior hospital medical officers. In order that every application may best be demon-strated, Sir Alexander Fleming has delegated to an imposing selection of experts the task of representing the specialized aspects of penicillin therapy. The book is, in effect, a collection of articles, and the authors, each in an understandable desire to present a complete picture, have overlapped considerably; and although not contradicting each other, there is an occasional discrepancy in dosage prescribed for the same condition by different people.
