In this little volume the author undertakes an account of heart disease in women as it is influenced by their physiologic and anatomic characteristics, and by events peculiar to their life. Not only are the effects of these differences considered, but also the clinical observations and treatment. It is obvious that many important factors cannot be discussed as fully as desirable. This applies to the effects of pregnancy or the indications for interrupting pregnancy, two of many things which the reader turning to a special work for help would be glad to see taken up much more fully. There is little of importance for which the physician could not better turn to some authoritative reference book on heart disease.
