'Education in Heart' is designed to cover the core subjects for a continuing medical education programme in cardiology. This series is now collected in book form, creating a comprehensive update for cardiologists in key topical areas. Every peer reviewed contribution has been commissioned from a leading international specialist, to give a concise, yet authoritative overview. Chapters are enhanced with full colour illustration and useful summaries, and additional references and ongoing correspondence can be accessed via the Heart website. Volume 2 includes 36 separate topics grouped into the main subspecialities: coronary disease; heart failure; cardiomyopathy; valve disease; electrophysiology; congenital heart disease; imaging techniques; general cardiolgy; and hypertension. This is the second volume of an annual publication which will be an invaluable resource for all practising cardiologists needing to keep up to date in the major clinical areas.
