Even the most admirable product can be improved on. It is a pleasure to report, therefore, that the second edition of Allergy: Principles and Practice, edited by Middleton, Reed, and Ellis, is even better than the first. Comprehensiveness, readability, and timeliness have been preserved, and all sections of the book have been updated.

Several important new chapters have been added and others completely rewritten. There is, for example, an excellent new description of immunoglobulin structure and function by Poljak and a very readable account of the control of antibody synthesis by Katz and Mead. For the nonimmunologist, these chapters will be especially valuable. The section on clinical science has been revised with equivalent thoroughness. There is an added chapter on the clinical significance of IgE by Knauer and Adkinson, an updated account of the eosinophil by Cohen and Ottesen, and a great deal of new information on such diverse topics
