“An excellent contribution to the relevant contemporary literature…. I enjoyed reading the ebook and recommend it to my colleagues.” World Journal of Surgery

“This textbook is cohesive; tightly organized; and has no repetition…. It is beautifully illustrated…and is my ‘go to’ source for rapid reference.” Journal of Interventional Cardiology

“I would recommend this ebook; Pulmonary Embolism 3e to all physicians looking after patients with venous thromboembolism … .The single author style has the advantage of a consistent format and lack of repetition; and the ebook is very well written.” Cardiology News

“Paul Stein … has used his vast knowledge and perspective to organize this definitive text … .In this long-awaited second edition he builds on the knowledge base regarding this common and yet often misdiagnosed condition. This text fills a gap in the knowledge-base of the physician; nurse; or therapist who cares for patients with pulmonary embolism. By using a clear and organized format with many graphs and diagrams; Stein provides detailed information beyond the scope of an online review; but in a readily searchable and easily accessible format. Stein does a nice job of explaining the challenges of using intermediate end points in the assessment of efficacy. Stein is clearly one of the world’s experts; and this far-reaching volume is a pleasure to read.” Respiratory Care
