This is one of a series of "Clinical Cardiology Monographs." It is a multi-author book with chapters reflecting the authors' views and including literature review. There is adequate discussion of anatomic, pathophysiologic, and hemodynamic alterations in myocardial infarction with specific reference to "cardiogenic shock." The therapeutic implications of such changes are discussed. These chapters include much valuable information. However, the monograph suffers from some obvious deficiencies. Whereas the cardiac component of the "shock syndrome" is stressed, there is no adequate discussion of the peripheral circulatory adjustments and their contribution to the "shock syndrome," and implications in therapy.
