This is another book, a good one, on the abnormalities of the heart beat especially as revealed by the electrocardiograph. This instrument and the normal electrocardiogram are described, and the normal mechanism is explained. Then the abnormal rhythms are taken up with their clinical symptoms and electrocardiographic observations and there is discussion of the variations from the normal mechanism. The author tries by a study of the abnormal to work back to an understanding of the normal. The book is well written and well printed, and there are many excellent and instructive illustrations. The binding in at the end of the book of forty or fifty pages of advertising printed on poor paper mars an otherwise artistically gotten up book.
