This edition has been increased in size by some thirty pages and is much better assembled than the preceding edition. However, in comparison with other books both in German and in English dealing with the subject, this one is somewhat inferior. Not much is said about the precordial lead in infarction of the heart. The terminology with regard to ventricular extrasystoles and bundle branch block used by the author is no longer followed. Many of the electrocardiograms are touched up, and the illustrations presented to cover the various subdivisions might have been improved. Nevertheless, the diagrams with which this booklet is profusely illustrated should be stimulating not only to beginning students and medical practitioners but also to persons well versed in the subject.
