This is a comprehensive, reliable and useful summary of the chemical composition, preparation and distribution in the body of the thyroid hormone, and, secondly, of its physiologic and pharmacologic action. The literature on both of these aspects of thyroid physiology is extensive, and in this monograph the references fill forty pages. The authors have achieved a commendable brevity, at some sacrifice of critical evaluation. The volume is a welcome and useful work for the biologic and clinical investigator of thyroid problems in health and disease.
