This volume is written by one who is well acquainted with Ehrlich, and the material is presented in a sympathetic and intelligent manner. It is a popular work rather than a technical biography. One gains from it a satisfactory viewpoint concerning Ehrlich, his mode of working and his contributions to chemotherapy—especially with regard to the beginnings of this important field. Much space is devoted to the work that led to the discovery of salvarsan 606, or arsphenamine. This book should prove of great interest to many workers in the field of chemotherapy and should be informative to biologic scientists in general.
