A very easy read that flows well.

I thoroughly recommend this unique medical text to bright, nonmedical students who need a basic and easy to understand text on cardiology.

I am an electrical engineer with experience in heart related medical device systems, with no biology background. I have tried many books over the years to help understand the ideas presented by the clinical staff. They are all too complicated to follow. This book very systematically moves through basic ideas with concise, yet elaborate descriptions of main ideas that would help one follow more sophisticated topics about various reasons for different heart problems.

The book is great but beware, even though the book says "Resources for students: fully searchable online eBook" - there is NO online ebook access - I e-mailed them about it 2 days ago but they didn't bother answering yet.

This is a totally awesome book. I am a cardiovascular technology student doing my echocardiography module, and this book has everything! It explains pathophysiology in a easy way; and in addition, gives the signs and symptoms and treatments for each disorder. This is a must read for anyone learning cardiology! It is my favorite book and has a special place on my bookshelf.

This "text book" is an excellent, concise, and understandable text for first or second year medial students learning about cardiology. Each chapter clearly explains pathology, pathophysiology, patient presentation, physical exam findings, and treatment of a wide variety of cardiac pathologies.

I bought this book because I felt like I didn't really understand what exactly the different heart diseases were about (how they they arise, how they can be determined clinically and how they can be managed) from lectures and class notes. And I was very impressed with how this book filled in those gaps and much more. In general, a chapter is broken down to the physiology, pathophysiology and finally treatment/management of a particular disease process such as Hypertension or Heart Failure. It does an EXCELLENT job of explaining heart sounds and ECGs particularly because each of these topics have an introductory chapter discussing the fundamental concepts and an additional chapter or two on the various disease processes. For instance, there's a chapter on the basics of ECGs, a second chapter devoted to how arrhythmias form, and another on the clinically important arrhythmias.
This book however, isn't going to help with pathology but it I don't think it's meant to.
Bottom line: if you aren't satisfied with the way cardiovascular physiology is taught in school get this!

If there is one book you should read cover-to-cover as a preclinical medical student, it's this book. I don't care how your curriculum is set up, but when you are studying heart disease, this is the book you should have and it should be your chief source. Hopefully your school knows how awesome this book is and has it listed as the required reading for your cardio block.

This is, hands-down, the best textbook I have read in medical school. It goes into just enough depth with the concepts without diving too deeply into physiology that isn't important or practical. It is comprehensive enough that you don't need any other source, really, when studying cardiovascular pathophysiology. The chapter on EKGs is probably the only exception, because Dubin's book is superior and more idiot-proof. But overall, you will be a rock star if you read this thing cover-to-cover. It also sets up a tremendously strong foundation of knowledge for when you later hunker down to study for Step 1. A good understanding of the principles laid out in this book virtually ensures a strong performance on cardiology that will appear on Step 1.

Aside from the terrific content, the layout is nice, and it is very readable. So many useful diagrams and pictures.

So, in summation, if you are a preclinical med student, buy this book and read it. It's amazing.

This is a *must have* cardiology textbook for medical students who want to understand the subject. I read the entire book for my Cardiology block and feel like I can answer almost any question that comes my way. Furthermore, the figures and tables really break things down into manageable chunks and are great to reference.

Lilly is by far the best resource I've come across for 1st year cardio. A very easy read that flows well. He does an incredible job of concisely integrating background physiology before detailing disease pathways. Wish I would've bought it sooner.
