This is really an atlas of electrocardiography illustrating a great variety of normal and abnormal tracings with brief explanatory notes. Within the limits of such a project the execution is excellent; one wonders, however, whether any real purpose is served, since the expert is familiar with all this material, and the physician who is inexperienced can hardly train himself by the atlas method. However, for the physician who wishes to have at hand good illustrative curves of the various disorders of the cardiac mechanism for ready reference the book should be very useful.
