As Dr. Levine points out in his foreword, there has been no comprehensive clinical treatise on the appraisal of cardiac disability as an industrial accident. Dr. Texon in the detailed presentation of 100 case reports analyzes every conceivable angle of the problem, which is stated in systematic fashion in a preliminary section.

Dr. Texon has made a most valuable contribution with his meticulous studies and the penetrating and skillful way in which he summarized his conclusions in each case.
