5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing...and probably over your head, April 12, 2007
By 
This book is an amazing reference. It is a hardcore scientific look at the flow of blood through arteries. It's about time this edition was released, because the last edition is more than ten years old. The book is separated into chapters that are really monographs on their respective subjects. The authors do an excellent job of giving a bird's eye view of each topic and then go into far more detail than most people will be able to understand (myself included). But don't let that scare you away from the book. Even if you don't understand all the physics and thermodynamics, you can still grasp the principles.

If you have read any of the authors' journal articles, you know that their view of arterial bloodflow is much deeper than the mainstream medical community. This book explains the prevailing thought and then shows the shortcomings of conventional wisdom and presents the research that leads to a deeper understanding. Please do not think that this makes the book controversial. It is simply that most education on vascular physiology is nowhere near this deep or comprehensive. This is not truly a textbook. It is the ultimate reference for arterial bloodflow. Every serious student of the heart or vascular physiology should have this book in their library, and every researcher should have it on their shelf.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: McDonald's Blood Flow in Arteries, Sixth Edition: Theoretical, Experimental and Clinical Principles (Hardcover)
Some of the material is more scientific and staticistical than I understand, but my heart problem and high pretension are explained. Also facts about nutrition and causes of health problems were identified very emphatically
