    Well, there's always Pediatrics, Pain and Palliative if you want to add more fellowships and boards to your CV. It's all about choice. Even a generalist like me will need to keep recertifying every few years. Sucks but that is the life of medicine.

    Good luck on CCM.

    Mathew is the standard. Used Edelman & Burch. Didn't use e-echo.

    Didn't like Perrino's Practice, but loved Practical Approach.

    Never heard of Joseph Mathew's book until now. Per Amazon reviews and the above, sounds like a worthwhile addition to my library.

    Ordered this the other day, and will report back once I check it out:

    Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography Self-Assessment and Review (Roger L. Click)
