I picked up this book from the library shortly after my doctor told me I'd have to quit taking the pill because of sudden-onset hypertension. The science is a little outdated (after all, it was published 14 years ago), but the information goes right along with the things my cardiologist is telling me. It would have been really nice to have this information in my hands 10 years ago when I started taking the pill - maybe I would have made a different decision for my health.
