This laboratory manual for students of elementary physiology offers a good collection of detailed outlines for the performance of the classic experiments in physiology. The illustrations for the most part are diagrammatic and excellent, with the exception of a few photographs of impressive apparatus and of dissections which fail to illustrate. The book appears to add unnecessarily to the cost of medical education in that the printing and binding are better than are necessary in a laboratory guide.
