Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
In Heart Sense For Women, Dr. Stephen Sinatra draws upon his 25 years of internal and cardiology medicine to present a landmark book specifically written for the nonspecialist general reader and showing how a woman's heart is constructed differently than a man's, resulting in the experiences of heart problems somewhat differently than men do. Every aspect of female cardiology is covered including the way heart medications affect women, to subtler early warning symptoms for women, and more. The informative, potential lifesaving, very highly recommended text of Heart Sense For Women is replete with case studies and will enable women to read their body's unique and subtle signals in assessing if they are at risk for, or beginning to experience the symptoms of heart disease. An especially valued feature is a selftest that will help women assess their actual risk.
