Preface to the Third Edition
A period of 15 years elapsed between the appearance of the first and second editions of our textbook. We have produced the third edition in just over a half of this time, but much has happened in the interim. The task of putting together this new edition has proved just as hard as was that of producing the second edition. Apart from one of us, all of the initial editors have now stepped down from the editorial team. Sadly, one of our number, Fergus Macartney, is no longer with us. The new editors take this opportunity to acknowledge his role in getting the first edition off the ground. We also express a huge debt of gratitude to Elliot Shinebourne and Mike Tynan, who are now enjoying richly deserved and fruitful retirements. Our remaining initial editor is also allegedly retired, but still in harness with new appointments at the Medical University of South Carolina and Newcastle University.
As already indicated, much has happened in the field of cardiac disease in the young since the turn of the millennium. All of these changes are reflected in this third edition, which is markedly changed from our second offering. One of the major changes is the geographic representation of the editorial team, with editorial input now provided from Europe, North America and Australasia. To further offer a worldwide perspective, we have invited authors from five continents to contribute their cutting-edge expertise to the new edition.
Readers will note multiple changes in the format of the book, thanks to the suggestions of our publisher. Thankfully, we are now able to include color illustrations throughout the book. The influence of this change on the figures is truly spectacular. Also, the third edition now includes access to the full content of the book via a dedicated Expert Consult website. We have chosen to include the full lists of references exclusively in this web version, closing each of the chapters in the print version with a list of annotated references. In this way, we have been able to condense the contents into a single volume, which we consider a significant advance.
Although we have made these multiple changes, we hope that the overall philosophy and approach of the book is unchanged. As with the previous edition, we have sought to maintain a standard style throughout the text. We hope that the uniformity achieved, along with an avoidance of abbreviations, will make the text appreciably easier to read and assimilate. Some of the revised chapters took some time to be written, but the quality of the chapters made the wait worthwhile. It is our belief that we have produced a truly first-class third edition.
We thank all our contributing authors for their efforts in making this possible. We also thank the editorial and production teams at Elsevier for smoothing the path towards publication, in particular Pamela Hetherington, who laboured beyond the call of duty in her efforts to obtain all the chapters on time. We are also indebted to Linnea Hermanson, production editor, who made correction of the proofs a pleasurable task rather than a chore. We particularly wish to thank Gemma Price, who drew and coloured the majority of the beautiful cartoons that grace our pages. We also express our thanks to our various friends and colleagues who permitted us to use illustrations from various previous collaborative ventures. We have cited their contributions in the legends to the specific figures, hoping that we have not made any omissions. We close this preface to the third edition with the same hopes as expressed for the second edition. It is our belief that this version marks a significant step upwards in the quality of our textbook. We hope that you, the reader, share our own enthusiasm as you make your way through its pages.
