The author bases his textbook primarily on the concepts of F. N. Wilson and D. Sodi Pallares to whom the book is dedicated. A short outline is given of cardiac anatomy and physiology, and the fundamentals of electrophysiology are discussed. "Unipolar"leads and the electrical axis are dealt with in great detail, the ventricular gradient is taken up in a special chapter, and the second half of the book is devoted to the arrhythmias and to clinical electrocardiography. Unfortunately, in some illustrations the tracings are mounted upside down: in other figures, shown for the demonstration of arrhythmias, much longer strips should be presented. Definite misinterpretations can be found, like that of a premature systole of sinus origin in figure 92 and of paroxysmal ventricular tachycardia in figure 139, the latter obviously an artefact; flutter with supposedly 3:1 auriculoventricular conduction is shown in figure 107; figure 96 is described as normal sinus
