  • I recommend this book to anyone who desires a high level but brief overview of the management of patients with dyslipidemia. The book can be read in its entirety in just a few hours, but it is also the kind of book that can be a quick reference when a patient presents with an interesting lipid disorder or a challenging management issue.
