As the title indicates, this volume is a textbook of general physiology designed for students interested in the field. Written from the point of view first expressed by Claude-Bernard, the author does a most creditable and systematic job. At the end of each chapter there is a comprehensive bibliography. In succeeding chapters one finds a discussion of the cell as a physicochemical system, chemistry of cell processes, energetics of the living substance, the cell as a morphologic system, general physiology of cell development and architecture, general physiology of irritable processes, and tropisms. The practicing physician will not find the book serviceable to him although the phenomena discussed are at the basis of, or tantamount with, life itself.
