Editorial Reviews

Gordon M. Wahler
This book reivews the field of physiology, emphasizing many clinical applications of basic concepts. The purpose of the book is to provide a concise summary of mammalian and, particularly, of human physiology for medical students. This is a formidable task and a worthy objective, which the author meets. The targeted audience is medical students (and others) who have some knowledge of anatomy, chemistry, and biochemistry; however, this text would be useful for anyone wishing to review the fundamentals of physiology (e.g., graduate students). The illustrations are black-and-white and are very clear and relevant to the material covered. Reference quantity and quality could be improved; thus, some references are dated. The index is very thorough and helpful. One special feature of the book is its self-study question section, which may aid students studying for national board examinations. This book is concise and comprehensive. It is generally well-written and would be particularly useful for students wishing to review the fundamentals of physiology. (Reviewer's Note: There is a factual error in the text. In Table 3-4 (p.69), footnote 2 states: ""T (transient) Ca 2+ channels open when the muscle is more depolarized, whereas the L (long-lasting) channels require less depolarization."" This is not true; in fact, the reverse is true. The statement should read: ""T (transient) Ca 2+ channels open when the muscle is less depolarized, whereas the L (long-lasting) channels require more depolarization."" This is a relatively minor error that does not significantly detract from the overall quality of the book. However, since the statement is clearly not correct as it stands, it should bepointed out.)

From Barnes & Noble
This concise yet comprehensive guide to mammalian physiology (with emphasis on human physiology) reflects advances in research, including new information on intercellular signalling and receptors, pain, thyroid hormone resistance, and more. Filled with clinical examples and illustrated with 2-color and black-and-white drawings. A self-study section features integrative, essay-type, and multiple choice questions similar to those on the USMLE.
