In this handsomely printed and profusely illustrated monograph the writer has assembled a great deal of material pertaining to the liver of special interest to the surgeon. Liver function tests from the standpoint of preparation for operation, vitamin K, hepatic function in thyroid disease and, above all, the dreaded and mysterious "liver death" occurring after operation are discussed in detail. There is much in this book of interest, even though it is really a collection of loosely related essays, rather than a systematic treatise.
