From The CriticsReviewer: Polly A Royal, DNP, RN-BC(Purdue University School of Nursing)
Description: This book begins with a brief, layman-type introduction to the correlation between heart disease and diet. The remaining 134 pages of the book's 156 pages contain meatless, heart-healthy recipes.
Purpose: The author states the purpose very clearly in the introduction: "My goal in putting this guide together was to aid you in developing a regular diet of foods you will enjoy eating while at the same time boosting your cardiac health." Based on the fact that the number one killer in the United States is heart disease, the objective is a worthy one.
Audience: It appears that the book is written for the general public concerned about decreasing their cardiac risk factors. The author is a credible authority.
Features: The author provides a brief introduction explaining the correlation between heart disease, diet, and other risk factors. He also includes a personal story regarding how heart disease has personally influenced his life and career.
Assessment: The author's objective was not met. This is a recipe book containing ingredients that mainstream Americans would not "enjoy eating."
