A large number of books on electrocardiography of varying excellence have appeared during the past few years. The present work, as one might expect from the author's qualifications as a cardiac physiologist, deals with the subject in a scholarly way and in great detail. The various features of tracings, normal and abnormal, are analyzed and discussed meticulously. Indeed, in part it makes rather heavy reading because of the very detail. The book is handsomely got up and profusely illustrated with many reproductions of electrocardiograms, apparatus, diagrams, etc. The sections on theory discuss not only the author's views but the subject in general.
