Newly reissued and with a new introduction--the everywoman's guide to her heart that is "filled with information that can be life saving."-- Dean Ornish, M.D.

Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the United States, and this live-saving book helps women understand, avoid, and survive the disease. Vital information includes a profile of the high-risk woman, specific female considerations, including pregnancy, menopause and estrogen replacement therapy, stress, and how to avoid being labeled "hysterical" by your doctor, the good news about diet and exercise, and much more.

From Publishers Weekly:

A virtual owner's manual for the female heart, this detailed, accessible book contains many accounts of current studies but too few case histories to humanize the data. Illustrations.
