As the name implies, this book consists of a series of graphic records of patients who have shown abnormal electrocardiograms. They represent selections from over 7,500 persons. The book is essentially one for the beginner. A simple descriptive style has been followed throughout, so that the neophyte, starting with the first series of plates, which are normal ones and which show minimal changes in the several complexes, is able ultimately to come to the interpretation of difficult and unusual electrocardiograms.
The book is printed on semiglossy paper, which makes for clarity of the tracings. Unfortunately, but for obvious reasons, the length of the book is out of all proportion to its width, so that it cannot be kept in the ordinary library bookcase.
