The mere knowledge of the existence of a 700-page book on tachycardias is, in itself, likely to have a mildly emetic effect on some cardiologists while at the same time leaving other physicians indifferent. In past years, standard and well-known textbooks of ECG interpretation have nurtured and instructed most cardiologists in their formative years. Within the last decade, it has become simply not sufficient to be familiar with all the innuendoes of the complex but static ECG. Textbooks of arrhythmias have multiplied. The interested physician may understandably be confused and perhaps dejected by the many publications available on arrhythmia. Surawicz,
