    Way better than a heart attack.

    The first thing that struck me in this book is a big chapter summarizing studies showing how much impact closeness with people can have on your health. Ornish has been running a clinic for people who¿ve had a heart attack and want to recover. Research at the clinic was the first ever to show that heart disease can be reversed. Until then, it was an established ¿fact¿ that you couldn¿t reverse heart disease. You might be able to slow it down, but you could never reverse it. Ornish did. One of the key factors at the clinic is teaching people to become closer to the people they love. The patients come to the clinic after they¿ve had a heart attack and their doctor told them they probably will have another one and it¿ll probably kill them. They come to Ornish highly motivated to try anything. Ornish says, ¿Learn to be closer to people or your doctor will probably be right.¿ For the first time in their lives, relationships take priority. They learn how to become closer. Ornish tells you in the book what they teach these patients. A year or two later, these people come back to tell Ornish they¿ve never been happier in their lives! It took a heart attack for them to take relationships seriously. I decided when I read it I wasn¿t going to wait for a heart attack. This book has been a revelation to me. I have known for a long time relationships are important. I have learned how to get along with people, how to win friends and influence people, how to get people to like me and how to make them feel good about themselves, but that is all beginner material. Important, but not in the same league as experiencing closeness. Closeness is better than anything. I have changed the way I interact with people and you know what? I¿ve been a lot happier! No kidding. You¿ll find some truly helpful guidance in this book. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I tell you sincerely: Love and Survival will help you be closer to the people you love. It works.
