Overview

Introducing the InVision Health Guides, the dramatic new way to look at our health.

This groundbreaking book brings heart health insights to readers more vividly than most medical professionals have seen. While other heart books are text–heavy with standard images of the heart, this book offers a fabulous, full–color journey through the cardiovascular system using what author Alexander Tsiaras calls "the science of visualization" a groundbreaking visual technology that sees into body tissue in many dimensions and at multiple points in time. The result: stunning visuals that are not merely reflections of the surface of an object (a blood cell, artery, or a heart valve), but are dimensional renderings.

In this visually–driven health book, we see the heart in all its miraculous function, view what can go wrong, and learn options for achieving cardiovascular health. It reveals:

o The development of the cardiovascular system from conception to birth

o The marvel of the adult cardiovascular system and how it works

o How hypertension and other risk factors insidiously damage this beautiful, powerful system

o Surgical, medical, and lifestyle strategies for cardiovascular health

By showing the astonishing beauty of the heart in action, this inspiring book makes the urgency of maintaining heart health real and relevant as never before.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
By using cutting-edge visual technology to illustrate the harmful effects of smoking, stress, lack of exercise, a poor diet and other well-established risk factors associated with heart disease, Tsiaras, an artist and the CEO of Anatomical Travelogue, a company that produces health-related multimedia products, clearly would rather show than tell. Whether it's a dramatic image of ruptured blood vessels caused by high blood sugar or a shot of an unhealthy retina damaged by hypertension, a picture may well be worth a thousand words. These pictures are so good, however, that the text tends to be overshadowed and fall flat. While this book is stunning to look at, there is actually very little new information concerning how to achieve the subtitle's promises. Interested readers will have likely heard, if not seen, much of it before. (Nov. 1) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
