The second edition of this useful book is more comprehensive than the first. It contains discussions of some of the recent advances in the relation of psychologic states to gastroenterologic functions as well as many other isolated recent observations. The mechanism of glandular function is more extensively discussed, including a presentation of the humoral and neurogenic regulatory factors. The book is well written and is presented in the same general fashion as the first edition. The bibliography is extensive and is up to date. This monograph should prove to be useful to internists and gastroenterologists as well as students and is highly recommended to anyone interested in the function of the digestive glands.
