Like its predecessors, the present edition of this well known little book provides the prospective student of pharmacology with a satisfactory didactic survey of the subject. The fact that six editions have appeared in ten years would seem to indicate that British students are well pleased with this method of approaching their course in experimental pharmacology. Doubtless the author requires supplementary reading of the more exhaustive textbooks in his own classes, as indeed he indicated in the preface to the first edition of this work; one would think, however, that there might be some danger of the lackadaisical type of student being satisfied with the preliminary sketch and never going on to a study of the larger canvas.
