This is a well-constructed work, written by experts in the field. It is organized in a question-and-answer format that invites browsing. General topics covered include the nature, causes, and diagnosis of high blood pressure, as well as therapy, medication, and other methods for keeping blood pressure under control, such as relaxation and stress management. The chapter on arterial hypertension is particularly good. Libraries with consumer health and patient information collections will find this useful, but should also bear in mind that a wealth of material is provided by various agencies such as the American Heart Association on a complimentary basis.
