KIRKUS REVIEW

A new series, Science Books, extends up to the ""popular adult"" level and presents the new findings and formulas which have emerged from the biochemist's laboratory to further the physician's conquest of disease. From the cells and enzymes in your body, to the bacteria which may affect and afflict it, this goes on to the discovery of the sulfa drugs; the anti-biotics; the hormones; vitamins; anticoagulants and anti-histamines- and in each case describes not only the infections they counteract, but also the toxic effects they may produce, along with something of their potency, and cost, etc. A straight- forward handling of a text in which the concentration of information is high, this is a record of recent achievement which does not neglect the unlimited potential ahead.
