Composite textbooks of medicine have become common in this country, but so far as the reviewer knows this is the first textbook of biochemistry to be compiled in this way. The obvious advantage of having experts deal with their special fields seems fulfilled when one finds among the authors of various sections such men as McCollum, Bloor, Drummond, Heidelberger, Luck and many others of equal prestige. The subject matter (too extensive to attempt to review in detail) is, for the most part, well presented, each section being followed by a bibliography of outstanding articles or reviews. While one misses the coherent point of view of a one-man book, one doubts whether any one person could cover the subject so adequately.
