Better than Cure (Noel Douglas. 6s.) is a handbook on

public health propaganda founded on the experience of the authors in Bermondsey. " Only an optimist expects a woman to be reasonable," the authors write, but this pronouncement is not indicative of the wealth of sound sense and valuable information and advice to be found in Dr. M. Connan and Mr. H. W. Bush's pages.
