Read it and be inspired.
Dr Steinbaum's passion for heart health shines through in what is anything but "just another self-help book."
Her style of drawing on personal experiences makes an often difficult subject, instantly accessible. I am not surprised the tv stations go to her for comment.

I bought this book in preparation for a 2 hour program I was giving on "The Heart in Health and Disease" to a Learning in Retirement group. Since many in the audience would be women, I was interested in reading her approach,knowing that heart disease can present differently in women than in men, and that most studies had been done in men. The author doesn't just discuss preventive measures. She does, however, talk of caring for the heart hopefully long before there is any indication of heart disease. She also educates women (and parenthetically men) on how to prepare for a visit with a physician and how to hold a dialogue with a physician to make the most of the encounter and relationship. The fact that one of the patients mentioned in the book is an internet friend added to my interest and perhaps even made me aware of the book. After reading it, I bought another copy to give as a prize at my presentation and recommended it to my audience. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

There is no other way to say it, I don't like self help books but this one has blown me away. I was moved to tears more than once while reading it. It is surprisingly readable and very instructive. While the doc sometimes gets a little too urgent/alarmist in tone, we are talking about heart health. There is a reason they say something is "as serious as a heart attack". Strongly recommend.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
