In this second edition of Electrical Disease of the Heart, our goal was to embrace and highlight the explosion of knowledge that our field has witnessed since the publication of the first edition of this book. Building on the success of our first edition, our approach continues to be one of bridging basic and clinical science in an attempt to meaningfully advance our understanding of heart disease and identify the knowledge gaps that exist. The book is organized into 77 chapters in 2 volumes. Each chapter includes up-to-date results of studies aimed at providing an understanding of the electrical function of the heart in health and disease, established and evidence- based knowledge of clinical outcomes, areas of controversy, and future trends. Our goal is to provide a contemporary and succinct distillation of the state of the art. Although many of the chapters are highly sub-specialized, this book is designed for a broad audience, ranging from medical and graduate students to clinicians and scientists. The book is the result of a collaboration that has brought together the skills and perspectives of researchers, scientists, and clinicians. We are deeply indebted to our associate editors and to all of the authors for their valuable contributions.
