This book essentially is a bird's-eye view of problems in the physiology of hepatic disease. Many of the data presented have been published previously, and some of the most interesting parts of the book deal with the general discussion by those participating. It is not a book for the general practitioner but is useful solely to the student primarily interested in disease of the liver. The major criticism of the volume is that too large a field is covered in a small space.
