This excellent and instructive brochure is divided into three main sections: (1) the cardiac neuroses, consisting of five lectures, (2) cardiovascular therapy, comprising six contributions and (3) miscellaneous, with four discussions by eminent physicians on cardiovascular anatomy, endocarditis and heart failure, pulmonary insufficiency and its reciprocal relationship to the vascular system and the rôle of the kidney in the circulation.

The reviewer has read carefully and with pleasure and interest the fifteen lectures, and aside from those in which microscopic and other means of demonstration were utilized in explaining the data, it would indeed be difficult to decide whether one was more complete or instructive than another.

The enthusiasm of Professor Groedel for the therapeutic effects of carbon dioxide baths in quite an imposing series of cardiac and vascular diseases, including hypertension and hypertrophy, is perhaps rather surprising, but one must remember that he is connected with Bad Nauheim.
