This handsome book, finely printed and beautifully and profusely illustrated, may well invoke the praise of Dr. Cossio's North American colleagues. It is really an advanced treatise on physical diagnosis; after preliminary chapters on anatomy and physiology there are detailed discussions of physical examination, electrocardiography, roentgenologic diagnosis, measurement of venous pressure, circulation time and similar topics. Finally, there is an exhaustive section on the semiology of the arrhythmias. The material is well presented and, as mentioned above, the diagrams and the reproductions of roentgenograms, electrocardiograms and heart sound tracings are unsurpassed.
