From his review of the extensive literature, Dr. Brandon has prepared an excellent book providing documented information on the use of corticosteroids in medical practice. A large number of well-chosen references make up an impressive bibliography. Readers seeking detailed information on the basic biochemical and physiological effects of corticosteroids will be disappointed. However, the statements on these aspects of the subject are well documented, and the reader is directed to the sources for further information. Not a single chemical formula has been presented, though differences in the molecular structure of the various corticosteroids have been described.
