The author uses dialogue to effectively convey some of the questions that patients ask after suffering heart attacks or being diagnosed with serious heart problems. Many of them want to know the risk factors involved in making love. Do they dare engage in passionate lovemaking and, if so, WHEN? Dr. Chapunoff is honest and forthright with his answers and provides general guidelines, while strongly emphasizing that only a patient's personal physician can provide the appropriate options and timing for sexual activity.
This book is informative, well-researched and appropriate for professionals; however, it is not too technical for the average reader who may be desperately seeking answers.
