Cardiac Arrhythmia, edited by Podrid and Kowey, is a comprehensive book on arrhythmology for clinicians. The chapter authors are prominent in the electrophysiology community; nevertheless, the book has been edited to be appropriate for cardiologists, general practitioners, and others with a general interest in arrhythmias who do not specialize in their treatment. Physicians embarking on an electrophysiology fellowship will gain a global picture of the areas of knowledge their training will involve. The book comprehensively covers general aspects of arrhythmias without necessitating prerequisite technical knowledge. It is not a manual or a reference book for electrophysiologists but rather a high-level treatise on arrhythmias for all others. Electrophysiologists will find the book useful, but many chapters will be too superficial.
