    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.

    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.

    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.
