This is a small work viewing physiology from the point of view of the relation of living beings to the transformation of energy exhibited by the chemical and physical changes occurring in them. There is little of morphology, and the relations of the circulation and respiration are dealt with briefly. The nervous system is briefly described, but the organs of special sense are merely noticed. There are two excellent chapters on the hygiene of nutrition and a separate chapter on alcohol. The book is evidently intended as an elementary presentation of the general subject of nutrition, and this purpose defines its limitations. While primarily suitable to the general student of science, it will form pleasant reading for the leisure moments of the physician.
