Over a dozen contributing authors present this symposium on amino acids and proteins. It is needless to recall that for the biologic sciences knowledge of the proteins and of their amino acid building stones is fundamental. As for medical science, it is in the midst of an era marked by an acute awareness of the nutritional factors in disease processes.

This book offers the physician a concise, simply presented account of the more or less accepted facts in the fascinating story about amino acids and proteins. The presentation deliberately avoids the technical and abstruse, and thus the book is substance easy to digest for the physician.

The reviewer recommends this book highly to the dermatologist who accepts the necessity for continual sustenance in the basic sciences.
