"Raj Naidu, MD University of Texas, San Antonio "What I liked about the sample chapter is the references blended within the text, the hints for each topic, and the tables/flowcharts, and graphs. I think all of this adds a great deal to the book. Also the format with the history, physical exam, lab, testing sections allowed the reader to systematically compare the text with his patient. By having this format and including more than just text, I think your book will have a distinctive advantage." Christopher Oh, MD, Fellow Loma Linda University "To date, I don't know of a manual in which a Fellow, or an Attending, can slip into his coat pocket a peripheral cardiology brain for easy referencing. It seems that this manual is thorough, yet concise. This is a plus during busy schedules and rounds. I believe that a book like this is very beneficial. Sunil Shroff Internal Medicine Resident going into Cardiology Fellowship Chicago, IL "The information presented is clear and concise. The topics and pearls are all very pertinent. The references to studies directly in the text is extremely useful, especially when using evidence-based medicine to guide practice. This is a very practical and useful text, especially at the level of a Medicine Intern. Medical Residents would also find this information very useful. A Cardiology Fellow may use a more detailed text, but the references to studies and the concise nature of the text make this a useful clinical reference when in the CCU - especially if their book was purchased at a point earlier in training. Medical Students on a 4th year rotation would DEFINITELY buy this book.From the Back Cover:
