ABSTRACT

Here is a romance on endocrinology which has a unique purpose. It not only presumes to inform the reader on the physiologic implications of the endocrine secretions but it attempts to show the relation of the endocrine glands to human conduct. Illustrated serial case reports accompany the text. The author appreciates that the entrance in the field of endocrine psychology is venturesome but he apparently has decided that such an attempt should be made. There is reason to believe, however, that his purpose will not receive justification in this book. To the average lay reader, mumps will be dreaded as a disease that made a dancing boy of Donald and relegated Clara to a drab existence. While this may be one method of calling the attention of the public to the fact that mumps is not always an insignificant infection, it is not the most desirable. It can do nothing
