With the burgeoning of literature on the prostaglandins, it is timely that two books have appeared to summarize the wide variety of biochemical and pharmacological actions of these compounds.
Horton's presentation is a succinct, easily readable account of the history, chemistry, and biology of the prostaglandins. The chapters on the identification and release of prostaglandins are excellent and lucidly present their metabolism and actions on various organ systems. The section on the nervous system is exceptionally comprehensive, as is expected from an author with Horton's research interests. Although some chapters are somewhat sketchy (cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems), I highly recommend
