The publisher advertises that in this edition the author "brought his text immediately up to date, adding much new material." A perusal of the volume revealed that, in addition to two minor changes elsewhere, only one chapter had been revised—the one dealing with the internal secretions. But even this chapter has scarcely been brought up to date, as shown by the retention of the statement that the chief function of the suprarenal glands is to produce epinephrine. The good features of the book have been retained, as there are practically no differences between the successive editions.
