' Dr. Arlidge's work should be welcomed by legislators and philanthropists as well as by the members of the medical profession, whose duty it is to be specially acquainted with those causes which affect the health of the different sections of the industrial community. ... It only remains for us to say that, having gone carefully through the book, we can confidently recommend it as a valuable work of reference to all who are interested in the welfare of the industrial classes.' - Lancet.
' A novel and important work dealing with a subject of great public as well as medical interest.' - Times.
' We have already briefly noticed Dr. Arlidge's interesting work; but the importance of the questions with which it deals is sufficient to justify a more complete account of the conclusions at which the author has arrived, and of the principal data upon which these conclusions have been founded.' - Times.
'From what we have quoted it will be seen that the researches undertaken by
Dr. Arlidge, for his Milroy Lectures, and embodied in the volume before us, are, from a practical as well as a scientific point of view, of the most suggestive character to all who are concerned that wealth shall not increase while men decay.' - Standard.
'Will be considered the standard authority on the subject for many years to come.' - Glasgow Herald.
' This masterly work. . . . Dr. Arlidge in the preparation of this work has rendered a signal public service.' - Aberdeen Journal.
'This invaluable work.' - Daily Telegrath.
' Few, if any, British men have a better right than Dr. Arlidge to be heard on this particular subject. . . . (The volume is) crammed from cover to cover with most interesting and important information, given with a plainness of speech and a freedom from technical pretence that make it delightful reading for those without a smattering of medicine.' - National Observer.
