It is interesting that physiologists so often have a practical approach to clinical problems. Sir Thomas Lewis was an outstanding example of this. Dr. Rushmer's approach is similar to his. This volume should be valuable to medical students, since it links the structure of the cardiovascular system with its function in the normal subject and describes the changes that occur in various cardiac and vascular diseases. It should be valuable to the general practitioner in his daily problems in diagnosis, as it is written simply, without confusing technical terminology. It is an excellent and practical review of the problems of diagnosis in cardiovascular diseases that should interest the internist and cardiologist. The illustrations are fascinating.
