The first book edited by Grossman has twenty-four contributors, each a distinguished expert and teacher of cardiology laboratory science and art. Each has published extensively elsewhere and each section is obviously based on considerable experience, thoughtfully written, quite well illustrated, and unusually well referenced.
As a practical guide for the cardiology fellow entering the laboratory phase of his training, this book has no peers. The major section on evaluation of cardiac function and characteristic profiles of functional disorders is especially helpful in promoting thoughtful interpretation of data and valuable reference support.
It is a valuable supplement to the continuing education of cardiologists and teachers and should be required reading for laboratory technicians and nurses. Our highest recommendation is offered for this book.
