From the book reviews:"More than just an atlas of robotic cardiac surgery, this book is a comprehensive discussion of the application of robotic surgery and the history of its recent developments. ... The audience includes cardiac surgeons and their teams. ... This is an excellent book, written by experts in robotic cardiac surgery. It is a wonderful addition to the literature and should be of great use to surgeons interested in this new and exciting field." (Michael Bates, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2014)
