For this collection of thought-provoking ECGs, cardiologists around the world
were invited to submit cases that they felt demonstrated important
electrographic features.

This book serves to educate and inform clinicians about important electrographic
pearls and potentially challenge some in interpreting complex ECGs.

The intended audience is all cardiology fellows, electrophysiology fellows,
general cardiology staff, and electrophysiologists.

The greatest strength of the book is its organization. It allows readers to
quickly peruse the overall content of each case. Each case heading is bolded
and followed by text that is large and easy to read. Another key strength is
the presentation of the electrographic data. ECGs, EP studies, action
potentials, and other graphics are shown in large, color images with captions
explaining them. Authors seamlessly integrate these graphics into their text,
facilitating learning about the topic's subtleties. In some scenarios, the
authors ask questions after a case is presented which drives further discussion
that helps readers better understand the material. References at the end of
each case direct readers to further resources.

Overall, this is a great book for all cardiologists. It can strengthen one's
skills at reading and interpreting ECGs, and can expose even well-trained staff
to new and upcoming issues. It is certainly a must read for cardiology fellows
planning on going into electrophysiology. I would recommend this book to my
friends and colleagues in cardiology.
