The third edition of this comprehensive textbook, like the earlier editions, is a good presentation of the more important biochemical contributions bearing on medical science. It is thoroughly revised and somewhat enlarged by the addition of new material to previous chapters and the inclusion of new chapters on internal secretions, muscular activity, and tissue respiration. The additions are well presented, if one considers the great mass of material covered in the discussion. It would seem desirable to present more critical chemical information on the chemistry of the carbohydrates, lipins and proteins and their behavior toward reagents than the rather limited treatment found in this otherwise admirable work.
