Very informative book about taking care of your cardio health. Written in an easy to read style. Covers everything you need to know to take care of your heart. I learned quite a bit from this book and am recommending it to everyone. One interesting part of the book includes the exact medical history of Jim Fixx, the famous runner. So now there is no excuse not to run!

Everyone should read and/or own this one. My cardiologist looked it over at my last appointment and wants it for himself and will recommend it to others. Learned a great deal.

The best guide to heart health I have read

Since being diagnosed with heart disease I have read several books and this is by far the best. Easy to read and understand but very informative with solid information on what to do and why. After reading this book I talked to my cardiologist and devise a plan to improve my risks.

As a medical writer, I have an enormous amount of empathy for anyone attempting online research to identify reliable, science-based information about medical issues and accurate data about nutrition, exercise, and other preventative healthcare measures. The internet is a rich source of information, but there's no concise reliable source, and much of the advice that surfaces is misinformed or downright wrong. Sorting the wheat from the chaff is no easy task.

That online maze is what makes Heart 4

First, let me say that Dr. Gillinov performed heart valve surgery on me. So, I'm kind of partial. But I do consider my self a very honest. The book is a wealth of important information for anyone who has a heart problem, atherosclerosis, etc. or for anyone who wants to live a healthy lifestyle. He debunks some common myths and gives realistic advice about heart health and getting and staying healthy. My husband also read it and loved it and has put Dr. Gillinov's advice into action in his own li ...more

This is an excellent, comprehensive guide to heart disease. It is easy to read and not too overwhelming but covers everything from surgery to medications to psychosocial issues. Unfortunately, it didn't cover less common events or heart attacks that result from very few risk factors but it was still very helpful.
