In this volume the author cumulates some of the information concerning the condition of the body and the health of the athlete arising from studies of the athletes in the Olympic games held in Amsterdam in 1928. In those games particular provisions were made for careful study of the athletes before and after various contests were undertaken and some significant facts were established concerning the effects of athletics on the heart, the blood pressure and the condition generally. Of particular importance was the fact that the hearts of athletes are not usually enlarged but indeed are found to be somewhat smaller immediately after participation in athletic efforts. The book is illustrated with innumerable diagrams and roentgenograms which bring out fully the facts that have been mentioned.
