The introduction to clinical vectorcardiography is preceded by a clear and concise picture of the various problems entailed, conceptional as well as technical. A historical description of the electrometer of Waller and of the string galvanometer of Einthoven is followed by a very brief presentation of the very basic electronics involved in amplifier design. The historical development of vectorconcept and vectorcardiography is accurately detailed. The descriptive and clinical part of the monograph contains a great deal of valuable and often new information. "Dérouler" presentation of vectors, however, is not a technic best suited for vectorcardiography and never became popular elsewhere
