Book News Annotation:

This visual approach to teaching the anatomy, functioning, testing, risk factors for, and treatment of common conditions of the cardiovascular system includes color cartoons, diagrams, and patient photos with succinct comments. The chapter-end quizzes are pictorial in nature also. A description of the location of the heart exemplifies the type of humor employed: "Sure I lean to the left, but I'm really politically neutral." Contributors and consultants are nursing school faculty and practitioners.
