Nowadays when the ions, electrolytes, etc., are beginning to play such an important part in the discussions of therapeutics and physiology, a work like this translation of Prof. Cohen's should be welcomed. As a preliminary note to the American translation Prof. Jacques Loeb says it not only serves as an introduction to physical chemistry, but also teaches the physician and biologist how to apply this science to medical and biologic problems. We admit that in some respects the book will itself require some introductory study by a large majority of practitioners, but this is not an avoidable defect. The translator has evidently done his work well and has made his matter as clear as possible considering the nature of the text.
