This monograph represents the first attempt in recent years to present the physiology of the digestive tract in a single volume. The author states clearly that his purpose is "to make the basic facts of gastroenterological physiology readily available to medical or graduate students who are beginning their study of the digestive tract." This has been done in a very readable fashion. The page design, graphs, tables, and illustrations have all been done in a clear and easily read form. Dr. Davenport's justly famous wit appears frequently enough to make the text pleasurable as well as informative.
