"The editors, who are experienced pharmacologists ... have provided a comprehensive coverage of pharmacotherapy of heart diseases backed by a review of the pathophysiologic basis of the disease and therapy. ... would be of immense value for physicians treating heart disease and allied professionals in pharmaceutical and biomedical backgrounds who have an interest in cardiology. ... this book will prove a valuable resource as recent advances are covered well by experts in the respective fields." (Raja J. Selvaraj, Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapeutic, Vol. 7, 2016) "The book is an extensive 'link' between 'How' cardiovascular system works at molecular and signaling pathway levels ... . Overall, it is a fantastic attempt to demystify cardiovascular diseases at cellular and molecular levels and utilize the knowledge to potentially change the way cardiology is practiced and learned. ... it is a book worth a read for those involved in cardiovascular research ... ."
