IF one were to try to find any cause for adverse criticism of this excellent book, it would be that it fails to suggest to the student the need for reading the original literature on the subject, and fails to provide him with any help should he wish * to impart some human interest into the dry details of experimental manipulation. It is true that names are not entirely omitted, but it is difficult to find any references by which the worker can be guided to the place where firsthand details are to be found.
