This text is outstanding in its field and is admirably suited for instruction in the basic principles and clinical application of electrocardiography. It is written primarily for those who are beginning this study. The basic format of the book is unchanged from previous editions, although it has been revised rather extensively. It still presents the subject of electrocardiography in a particularly lucid and uncomplicated fashion. It should be possible for any student to comprehend the discussions of the electrophysiology of the heart. These are woven into the fabric of the book in a manner which makes clinical electrocardiography much more meaningful, thus helping to avoid the pitfalls of pattern diagnosis. This is a practical book in every respect. The book is well illustrated throughout, but in addition there is a large and useful collection of electrocardiograms. There is an excellent bibliography for those students who might want more detailed information
