Format: Paperback
This is a more clinically focussed follow-on book to the ECG made easy. Quite unusually for an ECG book the topics are ordered by clinical presentation rather than individual diseases.
I used to own a previous edition which included an introductory chapter that essentially contained most of ECG made easy. Unfortunately these days they have deleted that chapter because obviously there was no point buying ECG made easy otherwise. Now however, one is really required to buy both books as the ECG in practice won't directly remind you of the basic details of the ECG recording.

My main criticism of the book an hence deduction of a star is that some of the coverage is very inconsistent. For example, pericarditis has a tiny paragraph dedicated to it which does not mention the words 'saddle shaped' when referring to ST elevation and also does not PR interval depression as a useful discriminating feature. Further there is only one relatively subtle example of pericarditis given as an ECG. So rather than being a comprehensive book that would give you the depth of knowledge and experience of a multitude of ECGs there are topics where relatively little can be gleaned.

That said, the vast majority of the book is excellent with really nice ECG examples that have been printed out very well. They are all full 12 lead ECGs and there are insets highlighting important features. For most topics the depth of coverage is much better than any other ecg book I have read.

The text is quite gentle to read and has some really useful sections in each chapter on pitfalls e.g. tables of ecg diagnosis that could be easily mistaken for another incorrect diagnosis.
