This text did an excellent job in its delivery of a concise and comprehensive review of current accepted standards of practice in cardiology for primary care providers. It highlighted the important points of the various cardiac disorders most commonly encountered in primary care settings. It was written in an easy to comprehend format, and was well organized. The authors were very well versed in their subject matter, and their mastery of the material was immediately apparent. Nicely done.
