As one of the few truly unique efforts in electrocardiographic text material, this short, information-packed monograph is almost completely in tabular form. From P-wave to U-wave, the ECG deflections are considered seriatim and are cross-indexed to facilitate speedy reference to points of interest. Virtually every electrocardiographic consideration of interest (including considerable esoterica) is dealt with—with Teutonic thoroughness, yet in a condensed fashion. Despite this and the tabular format, there is no loss of "easy readability," for which congratulations are due not only the authors, but also the translator, Dr. William Wehrmacher. An atlas of technically beautiful electrocardiograms fits into a pocket in the book's cover.
This book should be used as a companion to more formal ECG material, although in many respects it is superior to some texts. It is superb as a teaching instrument for serious beginners in cardiology, but should also serve as a "quick reference" source
