This little book consists in essence of a review of the physiology of the circulation, with comments on abnormal conditions, such as hypertension. However, with hypertension, for example, there is no thorough discussion of current views as to humoral pressor substances. In general, moreover, the book lacks adequate documentation. There are no references and no index. It is, however, well written and makes interesting and stimulating reading.
