This is an excellent book for all women, it asks you to listen to your body signals, to take action, to take care of yourself. There is not enough emphasis today on women's heart health. I have read this book twice and given away 3 copies. I suggest that all women read this book and join "Go Red for Women.org" - if you read this book, you will want to lose weight, de-stress, and make life changes. Heart disease and stroke are the #1 & #3 killers of women in the US.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A Woman¿s Guide to Saving Her Own Life by Mellanie True Hills is a book written as a self-help guide to educate women in general and women of USA in particular , about the risks of heart disease and the steps that they can take to prevent such diseases or having come through, how to prevent recurrence and worsening of their health. The author was a high pressure executive and almost suffered heart attack and came out with an angioplasty (which was difficult because of the location) and is thus a survivor. She made a fairly intensive research of the various risk factors including heredity, life style, stress etc., and has developed a plan, which she has aptly named as HEART - H : Healthy eating E: Exercise daily A: Attitude R: Rest, Relaxation and Rejuvenation AND T: Take Proactive Control of your health The book is informative and well written with lots of charts and other inputs to help the reader chalk out her own action plan and see how it goes. Since she herself went through these problems, she comes out as a sincere person and her writing carries conviction. She is active as a speaker for the American Heart Association. Since it is so informative, the book could have been hard bound to withstand repeated use. A few editorial slips were noticed but they don¿t detract from the value of the book. All in all, this will be a good read for women (and their men), especially this month (February is observed as a heart health month in USA).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
