The thin Volume I sketches the nature of arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis, the extent of the diseases, and current knowledge of risk factors and prevention. The conclusions and recommendations of the Task Force are given in detail. See the editorial note in this issue on p. 317.
The fat Volume II is a more thorough presentation of the same topics in a different organization; it could serve very well as a very current textbook with full perspective for the medical student or the older physician seeking an up-to-date overview. A bargain; recommended.
