This book has been written "with the primary object of giving to the student, in an easily understandable form, the fundamental facts and theories of physiology, bearing in mind the limitations necessary in the student's textbook." It compares favorably with a number of standard textbooks of physiology published in the United States and Great Britain, for the use of medical students. The illustrations are excellent, the paper and print good; but in a number of the chapters the subject matter is not brought up to date. There is no reference to literature, an omission that detracts from the value of the book in the hands of the medical student. In some of the chapters, notably those on general dietetics, diet under various conditions, etc., some of the nutrition experiences of the recent war are brought in.
