A condensed but complete and readable review of certain metabolic diseases is presented in this second edition under the title given. Of the conditions dealt with by the author, obesity and diabetes mellitus are given the largest amount of space and by far the best handling. From the point of view of the general practitioner, to whom the book is addressed, it would be difficult to find a saner or more helpful discussion of the theoretical and practical problems involved in the diagnosis and treatment of obesity and diabetes mellitus. Undernutrition, diabetes insipidus and gout are also taken up. The large clinical experience of the author and his familiarity with the literature, combined with good judgment in therapeutics, make this book a valuable reference for the practicing physician. Translation into English would seem desirable.
