The daily excitement of a busy electrocardiographic (ECG) laboratory is nestled between the covers of this spiral-bound collection of 100 ECG case studies. Terse informative clinical histories accompany each ECG, the majority of which are well reproduced at full size. History and cardiogram are adjacent with the authors interpretation overleaf, facilitating reader self-testing. The examples selected involve problems of rhythm and morphology, and there is no attempt at organization or sequence. Indeed, the examples chosen cover a wide spectrum of routine everyday problems without any effort to be all inclusive or to serve as a text for beginner or advanced student.
The interpretations are sound and, in a low key, stress many basic but often inadequately appreciated clinical or ECG facts. While the advanced electrocardiographer would not be challenged, the student and clinician will find the choices provocative and informative. This manual will serve a distinct function in leisure selftesting
