Published Reviews

    "This book is an indispensable reference source for anyone interested in having a better understanding of cardiac electrophysiology." - Circulation, review of the last edition

    "A remarkable book that lives up to the promise of its title. It is an encyclopedic review of all areas of adult and pediatric cardiac electrophysiology ... Can be used by the trainee as an all-inclusive, in-depth course in electrophysiology. However, it will also be useful to the clinician who needs an accessible reference work ... A necessary addition to the library of every cardiology training program and every electrophysiologist, as well as all physicians with a special interest in arrhythmias." - NEJM, review of the last edition
