Many popular books have been written about the glands of internal secretions which are full of fallacies and half truths. Here, however, is a volume written by a recognized authority in a popular vein, so that any one eager to know of the recent fascinating advances in this subject will find it interesting and instructive. The book is well written, the subject matter is interestingly told, and, on the whole, the attitude has been conservative and with an eye to the truth.
To the large reading public interested in the internal secretions and to those who want to learn more of the recent accumulation of knowledge, this book is highly recommended. The author, possibly because of his training as editor of Endocrinology, has struck an excellent balance so that scientific facts are shorn of their technicalities but have lost little of their accuracy.
