"With chapters covering the latest advances in diagnostic and therapeutic areas, this is a very useful update of the previous edition." -- Surya M Artham, MD, MPH (Ochsner Clinic Foundation), Doody’s Review
"It is exceptionally easy reading, which, minding the complexity of the issues addressed, is one of the major advantages of this book over many other 'overviews'. It is designed for juniored and middle grade doctors who wish to build their basic knowledge of clinical cardiology and cardiac investigations and other healthcare providers who wish to educate themselves in diagnosing and managing patients with cardiovascular disease. It may also serve as a refresher of 'common sense' knowledge to cardiology trainees and other senior specialists who may find some useful 'pearls' and forgotten tips... It was a great pleasure to review this book as it gave me some new insights into the cardiovascular field and presented an opportunity to enjoy the reading... I would recommend it to my junior colleagues as a fun and alternative option to the main clinical textbooks."
