"This is a refreshing new book in the already crowded field of ECG interpretation books." ( Doody s Reviews , May 2009)
Pre-publication reviews:

Very thorough list of contents, broken down logically into sections....this is a very accessible book that is easy to read from cover to cover. - Postgraduate Medical Student, Warwick University

Once again I have been impressed by the level of input and comprehension into each chapter. I have no doubt that my medical students will be carrying around ECG at a Glance as much as they already carry around Medicine at a Glance! Could I be cheeky and ask for a copy or 2 when the book is finally printed! - Consultant Cardiologist & Electrophysiologist, James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough
