This is an important book. It is divided into five parts, and each part is divided into several chapters. Thus, carbohydrate metabolism is discussed from many viewpoints: its biochemistry, its physiology, its abnormal physiology in diabetes and other endocrine disorders and the manner in which its clinical and physiologic aspects can be integrated. At the end of each chapter is an active bibliography; in all, more than twelve hundred references are cited, so that a reader can easily follow, in greater detail than have the authors, any trail in carbohydrate metabolism which happens to interest him.

The various tables and illustrations are easily understood, and the printing is good. Best of all, the language is simple and direct, so that even the complicated intricacies of enzyme chemistry are made understandable.

The authors state that their work is intended to serve as a correlative text for the teaching of the subject
