The format of this new edition closely follows that of its predecessor, and most chapters have been brought up-to-date. The expansion of the section on cellular and general physiology reflects the increasing attention being given to these subjects. Once again the author has given more than the usual emphasis to homeostasis and regulatory mechanisms and has expanded his treatment of control systems and feedback.
The outstanding merit of the book lies in the clarity of the text, which is complemented by a large number of simple, well-drawn figures and diagrams. The book will appeal greatly to the average medical student
