Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is one of the most comprehensive textbooks I have ever come across. It truly leaves no stones unturned and each area is covered in impressive scope and depth. It is an indispensable source of reference for cardiologists and non-cardiologists alike. The online version is very user-friendly and follows the same format as the textbook. One added bonus is the update feature where all the most recent advances are updated regularly and inserted into the relevant chapters. The CD-ROM contains a generous number of very well chosen, good quality slides which can be imported for use in presentations. I would strongly recommend this textbook as a worthy addition to the medical library of any primary or secondary care physician and the online version makes it a very practical reference tool for everyday use. Nilar Than, Univadis,December 2009 REVIEW OF THE LAST EDITION "The editors have accomplished an impressive feat: improving on an already classic text...A worthy addition to the medical library of any practicing cardiologist, cardiology fellow, or health care practitioner with a special interest in heart disease." - JAMA
