"This book would be a very useful introductory text for medical students and nurses to read … .A useful size and covers theory to an appropriate depth." (Cardiology News, October - November 2007) Review of edition 1: This book is packed with information in ‘layman’s terms’ – @we ordinary (non-medical) people’ can then start to understand different types of faints that are being experienced or witnessed. The book can get very technical in parts, but not overly, regarding the heart, brain and systems. The Fainting Phenomenon book by Blair Grub should be in every surgery in the UK, it is a must that every Dr should have to hand. This is also a very good book for anyone who faints, be they patient, parents or carers, it will set them off on the road to ask the right questions with medical people to obtain a diagnosis for faints to put people (old or young) who suffer from this phenomenon at ease. It is a must read and should be a best seller in every UK surgery and hospital!
