No one is better fitted to write about the autonomic nervous system than Dr. Kuntz. In this little book he not only reviews in modern terms the anatomical arrangements but correlates them with physiological effects. Thus, a tie-up is effected between anatomy and chemical mediation of nerve impulse, endocrine influences in visceral function, temperature regulation, water metabolism, etc. The book seems valuable from the physician's standpoint in bridging the gap between basic science and clinical physiology. The paper and print are of fine quality, and there are an index and a bibliography.
