One can only be in sympathy with the purpose of this publication. It should serve as an important step towards the adoption of a uniform nomenclature for heart disease, and uniform criteria for using such nomenclature. The book deals with etiological, anatomical and physiological diagnosis, and the functional state of the heart. In the appendix are sections on electrocardiography and radiography. It is not a clinical exposition of heart disease, but as an aid in classifying cases it should prove most valuable to any physician interested in internal medicine.
