Published Reviews

    "This is a quick read and is unique in its approach to reviewing ECGs associated with common symptom presentations. This makes it a good book not only for cardiologists, but also for other clinicians who wish to interpret their patients' ECGs. Tables of etiologies and concise management discussions provide a quick review of the associated diagnoses."
    Pridhvi R Yelamanchili, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation), Doody Enterprises, Inc. Nov 2008

    "A very clear, well laid out and comprehensive ECG textbook. It is up-to-date with this new edition containing a chapter covering pacemakers, defibrillators and electrophysiology in simple terms."
