This is one of the clearest and best illustrated textbooks of physiology I have had the opportunity and the pleasure to read. The biochemical portion of this book is on the weak side in reference to its use as a biochemical text as is usually used in this country. But it is adequate for most students and should be a valuable supplement to those who cannot understand the present-day complexities of modern biochemistry. It is a text that it would be well to have on a practitioner's desk. It does not attempt to cover the clinical applications of either physiology or biochemistry. It is an honest straightforward presentation of a basic science. Understand this, and the application will come easily.
