"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

In general, I find Dr. Wallack's book useful and informative. I deduct one star because I find his chapters on diet and nutrition not strict enough by far.
Complement his book with Dr Dean Ornish's about reversing heart disease, the gold standard in my opinion. Place an order using this link:
By the way, I don't know either Dr Wallack or Dr Ornish personally, but I have read a lot of heart health books.
