A sequel to The Story of Your Blood and The Story of Your Brain and Nerves, this explores the two prime networks of glands in the human body, the endocrine and the exodrine. Within each system, the functions of all the glands are carefully explained from the lacrimal (tear making) variety through the thymus (""is it a gland?""), to the many familiar glands that make us grow, aid digestion and help create good health. The abnormalities of glandular activity (giantism, dwarfism) are also described in context. A well-organized overview for exacting aspirants in related professions.
