This book is a continuation of a series started many years ago. Many selected papers are abstracted by the editor and grouped under certain major headings.
In general, the abstracts are clearly given and are illustrated from time to time by charts and photographs. Editorial comments in some cases are pertinent, in other cases immaterial, and in some cases erroneous. The book is very useful for the busy general physician who would like to get a quick view of a year's work in endocrinology. Those interested primarily in this field naturally would wish to read the papers themselves in extenso.
