Explains everything ACLS in its most basic form, with rationales. Great study aid for persons preparing for ACLS or Cardiology. I have recommended it to friends and colleagues and refuse to lend mine lest I don't get it back. Excellent resource...

this book really brings the mega code to an unserstandable level. Great for the long standing ACLS person and the first time certification seekers

Few spelling errors, and you could use some more commas in dere. Over all, though, this is good.

Very disappointed, wish I could get my money back! Not written well, not 100% accurate. Would definately not recommend it. I've taken ACLS courses for over 20 years, this is the worse book I've used.
