This volume deals with the physiology of the alimentary tract, including chapters on food, hunger and thirst. The references to the literature are scanty. The paragraphs on the pathologic physiology of the digestive tract are rather superficial for a volume of this size. More and better illustrations would have enhanced the value of the book. The informed and critical reader finishes the volume with the impression that it is just one more textbook on digestion, but neither in content nor in form is it a significant contribution to physiology and medicine.
