This small brochure is written by one who has the advantage of being both a physicist and a physician. He has undertaken to present the fundamentals of high frequency therapy in a style so free from technical diction that physicians without basic training in electrophysics will at once understand the energy utilized in diathermy, d'arsonvalization and short wave therapy. In this aim the author has attained only a modicum of success, for it is inconceivable that, by a mere perusal of definitions and an abbreviated exposition intermixed with a number of mathematical formulas, one can grasp so complicated a subject as the one here presented. However, a study of this small volume will aid the novice in overcoming the first barriers and stimulate an interest in the details of this branch of medicine. After a foreword by Kowarschik in which this well known Vienna electrotherapist briefly surveys the advances and
