This compact handbook distills a lot of complex information into a highly digestible, practical format. Clear, informative diagrams and useful pull-out tables complement the text, and a list of key points and references for further reading are provided at the end of each chapter.

Overall this book fills a gap by providing a review of current diagnosis and management of heart failure in a concise, easily readable format and therefore is likely to be of use to general practitioners, medical students and junior medical staff, along with allied health and nursing staff who participate in the care of patients
with heart failure."
