Molecular Cardiology for the Cardiologist provides a short, easily readable summary of what the new biology brings to cardiology. With this in mind, special efforts have been made to present many comprehensive schemes and drawings, as well as teaching tables.
The five parts of the book provide a general introduction to the new language of biology; the normal structure of the heart and blood vessels; the physiopathology and the new therapeutic avenues that have been opened up by the new biology.
A concise summary of the keys that assist the cardiologist or student who seeks to learn and read more about this field. Provides practical examples to illustrate the clinical interest of the new approach.

`Dr Bernard Swynghedauw has written as sole author an important new book on molecular cardiology. He deals deftly with this oft neglected but increasingly important topic, and leads us gently through the forests of information, while giving us glimpses of what to many cardiologists are the still mysterious vistas of the molecule. The book then extends to the better known areas of cell signalling and towards the end tells us what can be learnt from the current genetic studies of rare cardiac diseases. To lighten our learning task, Bernard has provided no less than 69 figures, many of them outstanding. Furthermore, this all comes in a mere 250 pages, so that no one can complain that the task of reading the book requires too much time. I predict considerable success for this book and a second edition.'
