KIRKUS REVIEW

Biochemist Williams (Nutrition in a Nutshell, The Human Frontier, Biochemical Individuality, Free and Unequal) pursues a favorite theme--inborn individuality--and what it means to man. He promises here ""new information about real people of universal applicability,"" and with the assertion that the proper study of mankind is not man but men, ticks off what individuality, particularly the highly distinctive mind which each of us possesses, means in living... from sex, exercise, sleep down through psychology, psychiatry, philosophy, religion. While Mr. Williams admits to a sensitivity to overgeneralizations, his own testimonial for individuality takes on the coloration of a crusade that will not pause to acknowledge the likenesses that make science possible. Underscoring ""body wisdom"" and biochemical life orientation, this is an old style inspirational dressed up in the new science.
