This monograph attempts to describe all common and some of the more uncommon abnormalities. It is done in an easily readable style. It is quite acceptable as an introduction to the field.

There are some minor mistakes in some of the diagrams. Several of the reproductions of chest x-rays and angiocardiograms have lost detail and clarity in reproduction.

It will be primarily useful to the student, resident, general practitioner, and nurse who want a brief and concise understanding of congenital heart disease.
