Doody s Review Service
"For those looking for a relatively brief, up–to–date overview, Clinical Aspects of Implantable Cardioverter–Defibrillator Therapy is a nice addition to the bookshelf or briefcase."
Canadian Journal of Cardiology
"The book is certainly a resource for fellows and faculty in electrophysiology and also for the cardiology fellow in clinical training, provided that he/she already has some knowledge of the subject."
