This book is published by the author mainly to demonstrate his ability with this method. He tried to accumulate extensive material from the literature on insulin but unfortunately so carelessly that the excerpts lose the value which they had in the original papers. The clear understanding of hypoglycemic, pharmacologie shock in the interpretation of Sakel is to the author after many years of common knowledge apparently unknown. He has confused hypoglycemic shock with brain shock so called by him and in another place he does not differentiate both from allergic shock. The book is so confused that it cannot confuse anybody.
