The book is a pretty straightforward collection of ECG's put together by Dr. Marriott from his own collection and those of his colleagues. There aren't many frills to the book outside of the tracings and comments. It is setup with an ECG on the left hand page, and facing, on the opposite page, an interpretation from Dr. Marriott along with any clinical information he happened to have on hand from when the ECG was recorded. While it features a few classic examples of ECG patterns, mostly, as the title implies, it contains some of the more complex ECG cases you'll ever encounter.

Although Dr. Marriott initially considered assembling the book with the cases mixed at random, he instead decided to break it up into eight sections roughly categorizing the ECGs by their chief disturbance. This has its pros and cons: While it's nice to have all the cases together when you really want to practice a certain topic, such as wide-complex rhythms, if you're also looking to quiz yourself as you systematically work through the entire book, having a bunch of cases with similar features together gives you an unfair crutch. When you're in the Escape and Dissociation section, you already know to look for the underlying rhythms and signs of dissociation, rather than looking at each case as a blank slate, which would be a lot more challenging. I think the solution for that is to go through the entire book one time so that you see every case at least once, and then, as your memory of the cases fades, occasionally open to a random page and see how you fare. Of course, being tough cases, most of the ECG's have several factors that could affect where they end up being organized, but I think most of the classifications make sense and flow nicely.
