Finally it shows how the energy metabolism first elucidated for the mechanical work of muscle has been found to explain most of the other kinds of work done by cells, as in light production, secretion, ionic transport and electrical discharge.
It also examines the very varied kinds of muscle and the effects of some diseases on their structure and function. Pierce Limited preview – The relationship between mechanical events heat production.

Dorothy Needham’s study of the historical development of the biochemistry of muscular contraction has resulted in a book that is long, very important, elegantly illustrated, magnificently produced, intelligently indexed, and very expensive.
In form and style the book is an interpretative review of the relatively recent literature to a greater extent than it is a historical study. It considers the nature of the muscle machine and its fuel, as well as the intricate regulation of energy supply under different conditions.
