This is admirably adapted for the purpose for which it is intended, a textbook for colleges, schools of nursing and schools of physical education. The material is arranged logically, progressing from the comparatively simple phenomena of contraction to blood and circulation, the chemical changes of respiration and metabolism, and the regulation of the body function through the endocrine glands and the central nervous system. The book is profusely illustrated, and only a few of the illustrations might have been left out without decreasing the value of the manual.
