Reviews

'This new book would help an awakening Rip and Winkle (cardiologist) because it is straightforward and logical, taking the reader through current coronary medicine along a practical route from pathogenesis to prognosis. Skillfully written by two coauthors rather than assembled from multiple contributors, the book is quite readable and well organized. One of the great virtues of this book is the careful, critical way in which several topics are reviewed. This book satisfies a need not usually filled by large general textbooks.'
The New England journal of Medicine, 1987
'This book covers virtually all aspects of management of patients with coronary problems necessitating hospitalization in a coronary care unit.'
American Journal of Cardiology, 58 (1986)
'The authors provide a detailed discussion of hospital and post hospitalization management in uncomplicated and complicated acute myocardial infarction and the prognosis after myocardial infarction. The book is well referenced, with citations given throughout the text. ... well illustrated with photographs, drawings, electrocardiograms, graphs, and tables. ... will be valued by physicians at all levels of experience who are involved in acute coronary care and will be a welcome addition to the reference shelves of coronary care units.'
Annals of Internal Medicine, July 1987
