In 1903 Dr. Hoskins published a book called "The Tides of Life." The material in that work has been drawn on as the basis for the present volume, which describes for the intelligent reader, both lay and medical, our present knowledge of the glands of internal secretion. He explains with easy readability, but the reader must be prepared to study the dictionary and to acquire the necessary vocabulary for complete understanding. The book is sound in that it does not accept as conclusive some of the recent beliefs in this field, but it does give enough of the theory to indicate how the activities of the endocrine glands affect our minds, our bodies and our lives.
