This book is an excellent example of what a modern medical monograph should be. If it were not for one defect, one might consider it a classic. On the one hand it is an original, thorough, and complete study of its subject. It is presented in the context of all previous work, which is referred to throughout the text and constitutes a body of 520 references. It is a well-controlled clinical study based on three accurately defined groups of patients. The study techniques of cardiac catheterization at rest and during steady-state exercise are well worked out and examined by the author.

A summary at the end of each section and chapter serves as a means for quick access to the results and conclusions
