This book contains no material which would be of direct application to ophthalmology, and yet it should be of interest to all ophthalmologists, especially those engaged in postgraduate teaching, as an excellent example of the application of basic science to clinical medicine. The author's field is cardiology, and he has chosen chronic cardiac decompensation as a clinical entity in which the details of cardiac and circulatory physiology are discussed.
There is an excellent bibliography at the end of each section. It is to be hoped that a similar monograph will appear some day dealing with an ophthalmologic disease entity, such as glaucoma. This book would be an excellent pattern to follow.
