This is a manual for patients with heart disease, not unlike the manuals on diabetes or similar works already available for the inquisitive layman. It is intelligently written and discusses heart disease fairly and honestly, enlivened from time to time by apt anecdotes of cases in places that otherwise might seem gloomy or depressing. Levin states that the purpose of the book is to present to the reader a simplified explanation of various aspects of heart disease with the ultimate hope of instilling sane optimism in the patient's philosophy regarding this disorder. He has accomplished a step in the right direction.
