A great many doctors have read with interest and profit the "Cornell Conferences on Therapy" as they appeared in the New York State Journal of Medicine. It is therefore a satisfaction to have some of these authoritative discussions available in book form.
Among the fifteen topics selected for volume 1 is a variety of subjects, including five on various aspects of heart disease. Aside from the "regulars"—Dr. Gold, Dr. Cattell and others—some guest specialist usually participates and the presentation of part of the discussion in the form of a dialogue adds vivacity and "punch" to what is said.
The book makes for good reading and will be most useful as a reference. One wonders whether an index would not have been worth while.
