Review by: Gordon Tatler on Oct. 13, 2012 : (no rating)
I came across this book after my Doctor had problems with my EKG (ECG ad it is called in the UK) and could not resist reading it. Although set in 1930's America I found it a fabulously good read right from page one, and I just could not put it down until I finished it. Absolutely fascinating early analysis of EKG's, and a good, fast moving tale. Great stuff. Really is a brilliant book.
