Physical and mental health are essential to our great war effort, and should not only be maintained but rather improved. Dr. Francis Dieuaide emphasizes health as a positive quality of strength and vigor rather than as the absence of disease. In spite of great improvements during the last generation or so, a long and hard-fought struggle must be expected to depress American health unless there is early and careful planning to prevent such a disaster. It is a problem particularly for the civilian, for he must pay more attention to adequate nutrition, avoid all sorts of infectious diseases, be ready to work in spite of comparative age, and avoid the harmful effects of fear. Dr. Dieuaide has covered the whole subject in a realistic manner. His volume is not a medical treatise nor one that is intended for any professional group; it should appeal to all intelligent citizens.
