The Archives saluted this important book shortly after the first volume had appeared. Subsequently, the second, third and fourth volumes were received with the same enthusiasm that greeted the first.
The ninth volume is like its predecessors and lives up to their standards. The "Annual Review of Physiology" is intelligently compiled; it is written by a carefully selected list of contributors and each chapter concludes with an admirable list of bibliographic references. Each supplement continues to make the series an indispensable tool for those interested in internal medicine and its advances.
