This volume serves to integrate many studies relating to nutrition, growth and efficiency of metabolism. Vast amounts of data concerning the physiology and biochemistry of nutrition have been assembled, and the author has interpreted the information in an interesting and effective manner. Despite the broad scope of the fields discussed and the interspersion of many charts and tables, the reader's attention is carried easily from chapter to chapter without abatement of interest. Each of the twenty-five chapters deals with a distinct aspect of nutrition, such as: the definition and description of the nutritional units, the manner in which each serves its function, factors relating to the efficiency complex and the manner in which all agencies are integrated toward the maintenance of homeostasis, or dynamic biologic balance throughout the whole organism. The author reviews thoroughly the nature of growth in general, for regions as well as for the total organism. Consideration
