The first half of the volume was reviewed May 28, 1927, p. 1752. This half is devoted to a discussion in extenso of electrobiology, including the passive-electric phenomena in the animal and plant kingdom; currents of rest and action currents of muscle and nerve, electricity by the skin and glands, action currents in plants, electrical organs, the cause of electrical phenomena, and development of light in plants and animals. Of particular interest to physicians is the seventy-eight page chapter on the electrocardiogram by the late W. T. Einthoven. Every internist will be interested in and find this chapter invaluable in a study of his cardiac cases; for this pioneer in electrocardiography has discussed comprehensively not only the normal but also the pathologic aspects of the subject.
