Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book would be a very useful introductory text for medical students and nurses to read … .A useful size and covers theory to an appropriate depth." (Cardiology News, October - November 2007)

Review of edition 1:

This book is packed with information in ‘layman’s terms’ – @we ordinary (non-medical) people’ can then start to understand different types of faints that are being experienced or witnessed. The book can get very technical in parts, but not overly, regarding the heart, brain and systems. The Fainting Phenomenon book by Blair Grub should be in every surgery in the UK, it is a must that every Dr should have to hand. This is also a very good book for anyone who faints, be they patient, parents or carers, it will set them off on the road to ask the right questions with medical people to obtain a diagnosis for faints to put people (old or young) who suffer from this phenomenon at ease.
It is a must read and should be a best seller in every UK surgery and hospital!

I bought this book after I had fainted several times and was scheduled for a tilt table test. It is a good book written by an expert that my own doctor recognized, and it helped me understand the test results and diagnosis. Concise and easy to read, it is a valuable resource for anyone who lives with vasovagal syncope.

Dr Grubb is one of my doctors, and he is the leader in his field. He gave me this book after my first visit, and it has been a very helpful resource. Not only is he knowledgable about fainting and it's causes, he can explain the conditions without the crutch of medical jargon. If you have dysautonomia, or any other related condition, pick up this book!

Well written and concise. My cardiologist and I went through this book step by step. It answered our questions and gave us numerous options as to the cause and solutions to my fainting.
