This scholarly and well written book is divided into eleven chapters devoted to cell evolution in relation to instinct, instinct, heredity, evolution of species, physiology of the autonomic nervous system, the diencephalon, the functional evolution of the endocrine system, the endocrine system, the adrenogenital syndrome, symbiosis and parasitism, and the nature of man. The discussion of the adrenogenital system holds great interest for the clinician. It recounts in an interesting way the good teamwork done by Broster and his co-workers in the study of this problem. Aside from this chapter the book has no great interest for the man in private practice.
