Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"Willerson and his co-editors present a magnificent resource for both cardiologists and internists. Here, the reader is presented with the most comprehensive reference available on the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular disease. … a stunning job in presenting the complexities of heart disease in sharp and readable passages that convey data with precision and style. … a resource that should be used by cardiologists, internists, cardiac surgeons, endocrinologists and radiologists on a daily basis and in the direct treatment of patients." (John Aiello, The Electric Review, July, 2008)
