"This surgical atlas, composed predominantly of cardiac surgical specimens, covers normal cardiac anatomy, surgical approaches, and congenital heart defects. ... The audience is primarily surgeons and pathologists. Students and trainees in these disciplines will find it particularly valuable for its elucidation of many different types of complex cardiac anatomy. ... It is also useful for cardiologists and anesthesiologists working closely with cardiac surgery patients. " (Michael Bates, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2015)
