Excellent book March 16, 2011

I studied this textbook in a college class. It combines the needs of medical students as well as those of practicing physicians. It also offers great explanations of concepts in cardiology. The language of the text and the construction of the diagrams are both very concise, straight-forward, accurate and easy to understand. It was enjoyable and refreshing for me to review this text and it must be recommended both to medical students and practicing physicians
