Aided by a grant...from the Smithsonian...[Wood] devoted his spare time during the next eight years to the problem which he considered one of the most important of his life and [with the book offered here] revolutionized the then accepted theories of the treatment of fever (Kelly and Burrage, American Medical Biography, 1326).
