C. Garry observes, "No happier combination could have been found [to write it] than that of a physiologist, a biochemist and a clinician."

All the material one expects is here and is treated, wherever possible, from the standpoint of human physiology and biochemistry. Differences between British and Americanteaching practices are most apparent in the inclusion of anatomical drawings and photomicrographs of tissue sections. These should make the work of great value to students of chemistry and veterinary medicine. Differences between British and American terminology are less apparent here than in the average British scientific periodical, because the authors adopted current anatomical terminology and the spelling and usage advised by physiological and biochemical societies.
