As usual with the Macy reports, this is an excellent review of a difficult subject by a panel of experts. In this small but complex monograph on the adrenal cortex, Dr. Edward C. Kendall discusses the chemical structure of the adrenal cortex hormones and their relationship to biologic activity.

Dr. Gregory Pincus summarizes what is known about the regulation of adrenal cortex secretion. Other headings are "Clinical Studies with Cortisone and ACTH," "Steroid Metabolism in the Adrenal Cortex" and the "Relation of Vitamins to Adrenal Cortical Function."

This book would be of most value to clinical investigators and those interested in the experimental aspects of adrenal cortex physiology, for this is a complete summary of all the experimental and clinical evidence available at the time of presentation. The style is excellent. Necessarily many questions are left unanswered.
