This book is truly entitled "an introduction" and as such can be read by any one with a good high school education. The volume could serve as a supplement to advanced high school or beginning college courses in biology; it may be helpful in introducing the subject to nurses; it will be useful also to any intelligent reader who is anxious to develop or extend an elementary knowledge of biology. The method of presentation employed is rather unusual but its principal feature is the care which has been given to retain accuracy against a background of readily understandable scientific language.
