Intended for medical and dental students, this paper-bound book is “an attempt to present the essential facts and concepts of medical physiology in a relatively short text without sacrificing readability.” Such aspects as historical development, experimental methods, and comparative physiology have received little attention, and the book instead emphasizes the way “knowledge of human physiology aids in the understanding of clinical medicine and vice versa.” At the end of each section is a short list of recommended reviews and books. Adequately illustrated with line drawings and graphs; includes an appendix of abbreviations and acronyms and a 20-page subject index.
