KIRKUS REVIEW

Articles from Dr. Marvin, and other cardiac specialists, of the Board of Directors of the American Heart Association (Dr. T. Duckett Jones, Dr. Irvine H. Page, Dr. Irving S. Wright, Dr. David D. Rutstein) are here assembled for the greater understanding and education of the public on the question of diseases of the heart, -- in non-medical terms. Neither a self help, nor a re-all, these manage to present a cautious but confidentially handled roundup of information on the heart, blood and circulation. The heart at birth and its possible defects, heart attacks, derivable from coronary thrombosis, the anginal type, cardiac warnings; emotional health and preventable heart ailments; rheumatic fever and its results; high blood pressure (the commonest complaint) and the findings in hyper-tension; diseases of the blood and how to avert them; public health programs for heart ailments; common fallacies. Educational, understandable but not to be used without doctor's orders.
