This book is well organized. The subjects covered are interrelated so that one may get the whole picture of the various electrolyte and endocrine problems concerned in a disease entity without jumping from one chapter to another. This book should be useful for the general practitioner as well as the specialist. Each chapter reviews the biochemical changes in the various disease states where there are coexisting metabolic disturbances. Emphasis is more on biochemical changes than endocrine dysfunctions. The illustrations are adequate. The references are excellent and up to date.
