Book Reviews

"This book is easy to read, and a treat for clinicians who look forward to treating patients with heart rhythm disorders. It is an ideal handbook, appropriately comprehensive while easy to read. It covers the basics of arrhythmia recognition as well as providing algorithms on the management of simple and complex arrhythmias. While the audience for the book is narrow, that is by intention, as it focuses on a very specific aspect of cardiology. It is an essential title for cardiologists and cardiology fellows who must diagnose and treat heart rhythm disorders daily." Reviewed by Mohammed A. Ahmed, DO (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
