Ever since Vierordt published his famous "Tabellen" many years ago the need of compendiums of medical data has been recognized. No one can carry in his head all the values for physiologic, anatomic and chemical constants useful in clinical medicine; no one can keep in mind the details of the many biologic tests in current use. Synopses like this book, which in addition to technical details have some discussion of interpretation, are always useful, but their very briefness and hence dogmatic tendency may be criticized. The present volume contains a mine of useful material and could well have a place on the physician's shelf, or even in his bag.
