Terrific compendium of the latest thoughts about cardiovascular conditions. Each chapter is brief; this is not a massive textbook but it allowed me to quickly review the most recent evaluation and treatment modalities. The chapters on heart failure, cardiac emergencies, and arrhythmias are the best because they are so concise.
