This book succeeds fairly well in its aim as stated in the preface, namely, "to give clear, succinct, and practical information seasoned with sane comment." Some discussions seem a little too abbreviated. More might have been said about such subjects as anticoagulant therapy in coronary occlusion and newer studies of congenital heart disease via intracardiac catheterization. The treatment of heart failure is well described. No cardiograms are contained in this book, and the author gives his reasons for their omission. However, cardiograms might be of interest and help to the general practitioner at least in illustration of some of the text, as for example in the arrhythmias. The book should be well received by those engaged in general practice.
