Author of more than 10 books (which have sold half a million copies) - he is a nationally known family physician educator whose medical passion is cardiology. His trademark has been the ability to simplify otherwise complicated topics into a concise practical, easy-to-remember format. Having retired his 30-year academic position in July, 2010 - he is now taking his writing and development of educational pdf and on-line cardiology teaching materials to a new level.

Dr. Grauer has been a leading family physician educator for over 30 years.

- His NEWEST book has just been published! = "A 1st Book on ECGs-2014" - which is an introductory book for beginning students in any medical field. This book is 118 pages - it is ALL in COLOR - and should serve as an excellent START for introducing the reader into the world of ECG interpretation (Sample pages available on amazon). Expanded ePub version is now available.

- My most complete ECG book = ECG-2014-ePub. The hard copy book version is more concise, consisting of 260 pages (pocket sized/spiral binding for easy reference).
