In this early volume of the "Handbook," which was but lately received for review, almost every aspect of cardiac physiology, pharmacology and pathology is discussed in some detail. As a result one finds chapters not only on the physiologic anatomy of the heart (its size, musculature and valves), the apex beat, heart sounds, and dynamics of the heart, but also a detailed discussion of cardiac hypertrophy, dilatation and fibrillation. Some 150 pages alone are devoted to the pharmacology of the heart. Certainly this volume will be welcomed by many clinicians and experimental physiologists who are interested in cardiac physiology. The compilation of various clinical and experimental data is highly commendable. The volume contains such data which any one may care to have and on almost any topic pertaining to cardiac physiology. Although the literature referred to is not exclusively European, one wonders why reference is not made to Carlson's work
