This short book, by one of the best known writers on the subject, is worth reading by any practitioner of medicine.
The endocrine glands have their effects on all portions of the body, and as a consequence there is not a specialty which would not be interested in this book. One may not agree with all the ideas which the author presents, but they are well expressed and terse.
The book is well illustrated, and the bibliography, while not extensive, is good. The first edition appeared in 1923. This edition has been enlarged and brought up to date. On the whole, this book should be useful for any student of medicine.
