Dr. Lester Sauvage. . . is more than a pioneering surgeon; he is a visionary physician who addresses not only the causes and prevention of heart disease, but also the soul of his patients.

Wiley Barker

This book could serve as an excellent source of good information for any layman interested in cardiovascular disease. More importantly, it is exactly what patients need to help them understand what their doctors tell them. This book will be of inestimable value to great numbers of patients whose doctors don't have the time to get their well-intentioned but often inadequate explanations across to them. You Can Beat Heart Disease will go a long way to help patients overcome fear and become successful, active, informed participants in their own care.
