The method of presentation, the numerous clear diagrams and illustrations, and the avoidance of controversial material in this book indicate that the author has had wide experience in teaching electrocardiography. In general, the book follows the conventional pattern of an elementary textbook on electrocardiography, except that emphasis has been placed on the unipolar leads. The author has perhaps gone too far in presenting only one point of view throughout the book. For instance, many would question his statement that "basically there is no difference between atrial tachycardia and atrial flutter." References are meager (only four books and six articles). This is a good elementary textbook on electrocardiography for medical students, interns, and residents.
