This volume constitutes another attempt to give the public information in a simple form concerning the conception, the construction and the function of the human body. The book suffers, as do almost all such works, by the necessity for an extensive new vocabulary. The work is along the lines of an excellent series of articles now appearing in Hygeia, entitled "Simple Lessons in Human Anatomy." Because of its somewhat technical language and concentrated character, this book is better fitted for the experienced reader than for the average man.
