“An excellent resource for physicians on the frontlines of sports medicine, this book provides a thorough, easy-to-read review of the major topics in sports cardiology. … Sports medicine residents, fellows, and practicing physicians are the intended audience. … There is a significant level of pressure whenever a practitioner has to deal with an athlete’s cardiac condition and this book provides a perfect resource to begin researching a patient’s workup, treatment, and return to activity.” (Vijay Jotwani, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2011)
