Congenital Heart Disease edited by Daniel F. Downing is a multiauthored book that should be of interest to pediatricians, family practitioners, house officers, and medical students. It is a readable, well printed, and reasonably priced volume that discusses congenital heart disease in general and the more common defects in some detail. The first six chapters provide an excellent overall view of congenital heart disease beginning with a chapter on etiology of congenital heart disease and followed by a very lucid, well illustrated chapter on pathology by Van Mierop.
