Dr. Youmans begins his preface ". . . I have attempted to present the fundamentals of physiology for students of the medical sciences." This has been accomplished extremely well; with brevity, authority and clarity, in a very readable fashion. The book was so impressively good that the review copy was briefly loaned to a few nurses, house officers and associates; these "students of the medical sciences" concurred with the evaluation given above.
It is a short book—567 pages—and simply cannot cover as much of the field as completely as the larger texts, nor is it of value as a reference.
