"Back to Life After a Heart Crisis provides clear, jargon-free explanations of heart disease, and honest evaluation of the emotional and physical fallout from a heart crisis, and a comprehensive plan for common-sense recovery. [It] is like having a purse-sized personal physician-you know, the fantasy doctor seen on TV, the trusted, wise, supportive family friend."
"Back to Life after a Heart Crisis is chock-full of useful information, including explanations of medical terms, tests and procedures from the proverbial "horse's mouth"...Readers are unlikely to find another book quite like this one. It's unique and important for those who need it, and a clarion call to those who need to turn their health around, but are avoiding the tough decisions required to do so."
-The Huffington Post
"Powerful, practical, and deeply compassionate, this book is the blueprint for getting past the fear and living a vibrant, full life again."
-Arthur Agatston, M.D., author of The South Beach Diet
"A fascinating and inspiring story...What makes this book a 'must' for doctors and patients alike is the practical advice it contains on how to maintain emotional strength under duress and what steps to take to keep your heart healthy."
-Isadore Rosenfeld, M.D., Rossi Distinguished Professor of Clinical Medicine, Weill Cornell Medical College
