This is a superb book which is a précis of the voluminous information on pulmonary vascular diseases. Anatomy, physiology, and pathology are reviewed in depth; over 60 splendid pulmonary arteriograms dramatize congenital cardiac anomalies in a chapter by Israel Steinberg. Pulmonary embolic disease and the fascinating area of pulmonary hypertension conclude the seminar. This will be a laudable addition to the library of every internist.
