Editorial Reviews

Nurseweek
A compassionate, positive book for patients with heart failure on the challenges of living a quality lifestyle.
8/18/03
Library Journal
Silver has written a compassionate, positive book for patients with heart failure on the challenges of living a quality lifestyle. He avoids technical jargon in this fairly basic explanation of what heart failure is, what can cause it, the levels of severity, and the importance of the patient's responsibility in maintaining his/her health program. Emphasizing the importance of a good doctor/patient relationship, Silver outlines what the patient can do to control his/her health through attitude, diet, medication, education, and exercise. He also discusses conventional and experimental therapies and in several chapters addresses specifically families and young heart patients. This is a very encouraging book, giving basic advice and positive motivation. An excellent choice for health collections.-Janet M. Schneider, James A. Haley Veterans Hosp., Tampa, Fla.

    I had ordered this book before for family and friends on Amazon.

    I had ordered this book before for family and friends on Amazon. SO happy to have found it here on B and N.
    This is the bible of self help books for the millions with Congestive HEart Failure It goes beyond just talking about do'a and dont's but rather provides a framework for living with any chronic disease. It is clear and forthright and should be read by every patient with CHF and all of those who care for them and love them.
