This attractive work offers a survey of the structures and functions of all parts of the human body in textbook form, each chapter being followed by a summary and a set of questions. The physiological information is sometimes vague and fails to answer some of the questions most likely to interest a student for personal reasons, for instance, in connection with puberty and adolescence. At times, as in the discussion of the "spinal animal," the reader is left to learn more by implication from the context than from formal definition or explicit statement. However, this tendency to abstraction is balanced by the concreteness afforded by many excellent illustrations; 35 new drawings by Lucille Cassell Innes appear in this edition. It is to be recommended especially for classes at junior college level and schools of nursing.
