Review

2015 BMA Medical Book Awards: First Prize in Cardiology

"This is an expansive reference covering every aspect of cardiovascular disease from the global burden of disease to genetics, advanced imaging, vascular disease, heart failure, and therapeutic modalities. This edition offers online content that is updated weekly to supplement the text and provides an extensive library of tables and figures. The new edition has updated every chapter and added nine new chapters. This comprehensive, interactive update continues this book's tradition of excellence as a comprehensive educational resource for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease." Reviewed by Patrick T Campbell, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation), Excerpts from Doody's review service, Rating - 4 Stars!

"Now in its 10th edition, this is truly a superb resource for all things cardiovascular and seems to be breathtaking in its coverage. A lot of books can claim to be a one stop shop and though it does not claim to be-I guess this book should answer most queries from the basic to the sophisticated when dealing with a patient and their problems. There is a lot of good science within the text though undeniably, it is a clinical book; the basic science is relevant to a clinician and makes reading around a topic much more interesting and educational". Reviewed by: Dr Harry Brown , Nov 2014
