      Harwood Nuss doesn’t get the love it deserves! I used to re-read those short ‘pearly’ blurbs over and over again and try to memorize as much as I could. The micro chapters were so chock full of high yield, clinically usefulness. But why am I telling you that, you are already an acolyte!

Awesome article, I know - please share your erudite thoughts...
