I saw that one person wrote it is not a book for a specialist.....this is true, but it IS one of my favorite books. I am an acute care NP student and I am getting ready to start a cardiology ICU clinical. I am re-reading this book for the third time in two years in preparation for my clinical. What I like about it is that she does not just regurgitate facts and figures. She really makes a point to tell the reader what is important. I have picked up on key points as being from recent and important studies such as ALLHAT and JNC 7. I like that she points out clinical pearls and directs the reader to important criteria to pay attention to.
As a new Nurse Practitioner with a Cardiology practice, this book is a nice introduction to many topics that I encounter on a daily basis, caring for patients with cardiac issues.
Easy to read, smooth reading..Not too technical, but gets basic topics accross, and it serves as a nice transition for new practitioner.
Print quality varies, Some pages are so lightly printed it is difficult to read. Also, this book is ou dated. A newer updated edition is due. Many concepts remain true but medicine is always changing.
Deodorant for your language
very helpful. concise, but enough up to date information
Very easy to read with just enough info for a new cardiology nurse practitioner.
Great educational tool and reference in the cardiology world. I would definitely recommend this to anyone in the medical field.
I was recently on a committee preparing an ACC report on textbooks for young or new Cardiology practitioners, and older autodidacts brushing up on the latest science for a career change or advance. As a technical editor and volunteer at preptorial dot org, I prepare the exam questions both for their free test banks, and the actual professional exams for credentialing and CME's/ CPE's.
The standards we used were completeness, readability, level, relevance to exams, digital/web resources and price/value. Out of 22 texts and books evaluated, 4 got 10 stars (the equivalent of Amazon's 5 stars):

--Chizner: Clinical Cardiology Made Ridiculously Simple (Edition 4) (Medmaster Ridiculously Simple)
--Topol: The Topol Solution: Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, Third Edition with DVD, Plus Integrated Content Website (Topol,Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine)
--Chatterjee: Cardiology: An Illustrated Textbook (2 Volume set)
--Holler: Cardiology Essentials

First, stats:

Chizner: $20, 2014, 365 pages, Not an Illustrated text
Topol: $240 (but $6 US used), 2006, 1,600 pages, Illustrated
Chatterjee: $150, 2012, Two volumes (2,600 pages), Highly Illustrated
Holler: $52, 2007, 284 pages, Some illustration, PA oriented, some $30 used

Differences and reasons for high ratings: Chizner is the most up to date, has the highest cost/benefit ratio, and is very technical, packed with information and fine print, but not illustrated. This is ideal for the nurse/ PA/ Hospitalist going INTO Card, not just brushing up. Numerous up to date web resources and the authors respond quickly to inquiries.

Topol is older and originally very expensive, but also has numerous illustrations, web references that are mostly up to date even now, and is extremely comprehensive with a non intimidating writing style. The real value is that it is now available for under $10 US from many sources, which is extreme value for content. This still is one of five top picks for Card programs at med schools, and a top pick for library specialty collections at schools and hospitals.

Holler is specific for PA's and really gets down to the bedside nitty gritty, as does Chizner--very real world, although far less technical than Chizner. If you're a math wiz, go with Chizner, if you love patient interaction but also are a tech, Holler is outstanding.
The best of breed, but relatively expensive, is Chatterjee. This is now the number one choice for Card classes as well as residents in med schools and teaching hospitals. The price/value is the highest for relevance, with thousands of pages and illustrations, and voted the best teaching/writing style of ANY technical textbook in med, not just Card! Even valuable used, you will rarely find this, with CD, at deep discounts.

Choice depends on your objectives. Comprehensive knowledge: Chatterjee/Topol; Deep science: both of those plus Chizner; PA/brush up, test prep: Chizner, with some Holler. PA/Nurse/Hospitalist: Holler specializes and shines here, but Chizner also is outstanding, even though it is a deep read with lots of math and science.
Tip: visit the links above and do a comparative "look inside" if you're unsure of level. As far as sales statistics, Chizner wins, but that is generally a price function.

If you are doing self study, sorry about this due to price, but Chatterjee is unequalled for both explanatory power and illustrations, with less of a need for an instructor. To make this list, all four have to have state of the art digital resources. Enjoy! Email or comment if you have specific questions, I've got all four right here, along with 20+ others...

If you're a Card book author, and your book isn't on this list, it might not have been evaluated in this exercise, email and I'll include it on the panel.
