The impressive number of previous editions, printings, and translations indicates the wide appeal of this introductory textbook of electrocardiography. The content arrangement is standard, with descriptions of instrumentation, the normal electrocardiogram, myocardial infarction, pericarditis, hypertrophies, and cardiac arrhythmias. Very few changes have been made in the format since the fifth edition. The text is well illustrated with representative electrocardiograms of the various disease states. A short section describing His-bundle electrography has been added, but there are no examples of artificial pacemaker rhythms. There are some over-simplified concepts, controversial statements, and a few inaccuracies, which can not be avoided in primers
