74 Hoogerwerfs review mentioned above was published as a chapter in Helden der Wetenschap i. e. Heroes of Science, a book on Dutch Nobel Prize winners which has a somewhat romantic character corresponding 108 with the title. On the other hand, de Waarts book gives more scientific and technical details, and provides full reference to Einthovens papers, his assistants and the doctoral theses written under Einthovens guidance. On the whole there fore the latter is the best source of information and I have used it often and gratefully.

At the same time it requires more effort to read- the other book may have had a wider reading public. The main reason however for which I decided to write a book on Eintho ven and was encouraged to do so by the Einthoven Foundation, is not the want of an English text, but the fact that more information has become available in the meantime.
