It is of course impossible to review in detail the subject matter of a book of this size. In 37 chapters the author discusses the phenomena of heart failure, peripheral circulatory failure and what he chooses to call hypodiastolic failure. In this last group are included those instances of inadequate diastolic filling of the heart such as may occur in pericarditis or tachycardia. In general he follows a scheme in which a symptom is described, the circumstances under which it occurs are explained, and the mechanisms involved in its production are discussed; descriptions of pathological anatomy are included when indicated.
