A legend in the field of hypertension has edited a legendary book. Its publication is a tremendous accomplishment for a single editor, because it contains 923 pages of text and 161 pages of references, in which 9000 citations of the literature appear. The book deals mainly with the basic pathophysiologic mechanisms of hypertension in both animals and humans and gives a historical presentation of the basic research on hypertension up to 1984. Although publication of the book was delayed, it remains up to date because no significant findings have been presented since. In fact, the reader may be somewhat disappointed
