The tenth annual issue of this fine series, Annual Review of Pharmacology, vol 10, 1970 is a feast with several prize courses. I can single out only a few of the 24 courses or chapters in this short review. My choice of which of the chapters upon which to comment corresponds to my own bias of what I think is important.

If this were a wholly clinically oriented text I would choose to comment on chapter subjects on an existential basis, what can help a reader here and now in his daily work. The approach in this series is designed primarily to report what has been recently done in an area from a pharmacological standpoint and also, by extrapolation on what the future may hold. However, the Annual Review of Pharmacology is nonetheless of use or interest to the clinician.
