The second edition of this pretentious work appears within a period of little over a year after publication of the first—a tribute to the efforts of author and publisher to keep it abreast of recent developments in endocrinology. The new volume is longer by about forty pages than its predecessor (which was reviewed in The Journal, May 5, 1934). Actually, however, the new material exceeds the content of the additional pages, as parts of the text of the first edition have been omitted from the second. The author has avoided some of the errors of the first edition (chiefly by deletion) but unfortunately he has added as many or more in the new material. For information on chemistry in many cases he now refers the reader to the book by Harrow and Sherwin, the deficiencies of which have already been pointed out in The Journal (Aug. 18, 1934).
