A great deal of information is accumulated in this brief manual on syncope. It is doubtful, however, that it can be very useful as a guide in the recognition or management of its numerous causes. It is interesting to have the "unconscious state" as a central theme and developed around it a discussion of the mechanisms in various diseases and toxic states leading to it. The text is lucidly written, and presents a good review for the medical student and general practitioner.
