The major divisions of this book deal with circulation (heart and vessels), blood, respiration, nutrition, digestion, the liver, metabolism, the kidneys, enzymes and vitamins, hormones, allergies, and the nervous system. The informal style reflects the author's pleasure in teaching, and the amount of space devoted to the parts of the nervous system and their integrative action is commendable. A limited list of abbreviations, which can be frustrating to foreign readers but spacesaving to the author, is included. The bibliography and index are adequate, and the illustrations are clear and informative. The book can be recommended as a comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date summary of an important subject.
