The authors of this monograph have gone to utmost pains to put together a vast amount of detailed knowledge concerning the amino acids which is timely and of clinical interest. The fact that their bibliography includes seven hundred references gives an idea of their careful work.
This type of book is unlikely to have any general appeal. It is the kind of work, however, which all investigators interested in biochemistry will utilize, particularly those clinicians who are especially concerned with nutrition. Above all, it will appeal to persons who undertake analysis of the amino acids, since appropriate methods are described so clearly. The medical profession for a long time to come will be indebted to the writers for this enterprise and for the scholarly manner in which they have completed it.
