"A key feature of this book, and all the books in the Secrets series, is the way it reviews familiar topics. The question-and-answer format provides succinct and practical answers to the most common questions in cardiology. Additionally, the book begins with 100 of the most pertinent concepts found on board and recertification exams. The last section is an excellent reference for miscellaneous cardiovascular symptoms and diseases; the chapters on cardiovascular manifestations of connective tissue disorders and syncope are particularly useful.This book provides an efficient and interactive review of important cardiovascular topics."-Caleb Thompson, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation) Doody Review: 80/100
