not yet rated|write a review
This is the only in-depth, single author survey of heart development. It will provide a more systematic, up-to-date synthesis of the subject than any other volume, spanning the range from classical anatomical studies to recent findings in molecular biology. It also covers topics that areoften omitted from discussions of heart development, such as myocardial function, cardiac innervation, and conduction development and clinical correlates will be discussed throughout. The book is beautifully illustrated by Karen Waldo, an artist who has collaborated with Dr. Kirby for manyyears.

Editorial Reviews

"This book takes on the daunting task of making something most...consider labyrinthine, clearly understandable. The author provides readers with a holistic understanding of heart development. This well written book is an excellent reference on this subject."--Doody's
