The classic medical textbook tends to be overly technical, excessively detailed, profusely referenced, and the antithesis of enjoyable reading. With the expectation of many hours of hard work, I lvas unprepared for the pleasure that lay ahead. This book is what we in the United States call a « sleeper ». Without pomp or solemnity it captures you with a light-hearted style that subtly belies its sophistication. The authors have indeed mastered the art of simplicity, combining profound knowledge with an airy format, to a degree that is hard to emulate. All the salient features o. fpacing are presented here, from history and pathology to complications and long-range follow-up. Perhaps it is a mark of excellence, rather than a confession of my personal ignorance, to say that there is scarcely a section that did not provide me with a new bit of information or a new insight. Permanent pacing o. f the heart is so common nowadays, at least in the more affluent sections 0. 1' the world, that almost every person must know of someone with an implanted pacemaker. In the United States, where there are more than 100, 000 new implants each year, almost every sizeable hospital has a pacemaker implantation service and almost every physician in a related field is interested in doing this surgery. All that should really be required is that the surgeon make himself an expert.

Over the years we have heard many complaints that there is no verysimple book on cardiac pacing for real beginners. We have alsoheard that all the books on cardiac pacing are too complicated andimpossible to understand by beginners. Many have voiced the hopethat one day someone would write a book in the same style asDubin’s book on basic electrocardiography which is a hugebestseller with well over a million sold in many languages. A‘Dummy’ book on cardiac pacing would appeal to nurses,cardiology technicians, medical students and pacemaker companiesfor training their staff. We started with the assumption that the reader would know theprinciples of electrocardiography as in Dubin’s book butnothing about cardiac pacing. We carefully studied the Dubin bookand believe that we have improved his teaching method. The bookconsists of numbered illustrations each illustrating a concept inthe form of a diagram drawn professionally. We have been careful tomake the artwork simple for easy comprehension. Each illustration will occupy a page and have several lines oftext below it. We have already completed most of these. It isessential that there are all in color, this is a unique sellingpoint. The 3 authors have had vast experience in the field. Dr Baroldhas published 10 books on cardiac pacing and wrote the section oncardiac pacing in the 4th and 5th Edition of Braunwald’sbook, Heat Disease." S. Serge Barold, Roland Stroobandt and Alfons Sinnaeve Content: The plates depicting a concept with occupy 1 pages. Each plateconsists of a diagram and a short text. All diagrams are in color. In black and white they would losetheir teaching value There will be approx 200 plates. There will be approx 100 electrocardiograms. There will be a glossary, appendices and index

"Rate Adaptive Cardiac Pacing" provides a comprehensive overview of this most advanced form of stimulating the heart by means of cardiac pacemakers that vary the pacing rate according to the needs of the patients. The heart rate is controlled by one or several sensors that detect various parameters such as respiration,blood temperature, oxygen saturation, intracardiac pressure, QT interval, stroke volume andbody activity. Besides describing the clinical and functional characteristics of these various sensors, the book also gives a clear understanding of hemodynamic aspects and in particular, all clinical issues of importance such as indications for rate adaptive pacing and selection of the appropriate patients for rate adaptive pacemakers, with many ECG samples. The book also covers new concepts in rate adaptive pacing such as single lead atrial synchronous pacing and the combination of various sensors, which are among the most recent developments in the field. With contributions from the most wellknown experts in the field from allover the world, this book is the first publication to cover all the hemodynamic, clinical and technical aspects of rate adaptive cardiac pacing.

Look at the Birdie is a collection of fourteen previously unpublished short stories from one of the most original writers in all of American fiction. In this series of perfectly rendered vignettes, written just as he was starting to find his comic voice, Kurt Vonnegut paints a warm, wise, and often funny portrait of life in post—World War II America–a world where squabbling couples, high school geniuses, misfit office workers, and small-town lotharios struggle to adapt to changing technology, moral ambiguity, and unprecedented affluence. In “Shout About It from the Housetops,” an unassuming storm window salesman observes the effects of full disclosure firsthand when he drops in on the town’s freshly minted celebrity couple–a notorious ladies’ man and his novelist wife, author of a scandalous bestseller not-so-loosely based on her real marriage. “Shout About It from the Housetops” and the thirteen other never-before-published pieces that comprise Look at the Birdie serve as an unexpected gift for devoted readers who thought that Kurt Vonnegut’s unique voice had been stilled forever–and provide a terrific introduction to his short fiction for anyone who has yet to experience his genius.
