The often-asked question as to which book I would recommend in the area of pediatric electro-vectorcardiography can now be answered. Dr. Guntheroth's book is clear, concise, and readable.
Furthermore, he has avoided the pitfall of getting lost in detail which usually serves only to create confusion and to cause the reader to lose interest.
There will always be minor differences of opinion concerning electro-vectorcardiographic criteria and their interpretation. I believe, however, that Dr. Guntheroth has made a significant contribution which has been sorely needed.
This book will be of great interest and value to medical students, pediatricians interested in cardiology, and trainees in the subspeciality of pediatric cardiology. I would also predict that many pediatric cardiologists will find it of value to be acquainted with this book.
The book again illustrates that one of the most important assets of vectorcardiography is that it enables one to teach more easily electrocardiography.
