From the reviews:
"Each chapter quotes the major studies carried out in this field and clearly illustrates the results achieved, using tables, figures, and, noteworthy, complete references. ... Equally exact and evidence-based is the analysis of the pharmacological management of cardiovascular diseases; this entirely original chapter compares the pharmaeconomics of cardiovascular medicine against that of an intervention-based management, and underlines the effectiveness of a multidisciplinary model for risk factor prevention and control. ... The editorial form is clear, the contents and index complete..." - Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Disease
"Dr. Foody authored or coauthored three of the eighteen chapters, and has sufficiently edited the other chapters to insure a continuity of presentation and a minimum of duplication....The pathophysiology chapters on plaque instability and endothelial function and the clinical chapters on women and coronary artery disease and on exercise testing and risk assessment are clear, informative, and presented in a format that is interesting and clinically valuable." - Preventive Cardiology
"Preventive Cardiology: Strategies for the Prevention and Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease is a well edited, informative, and up-to-date treatment of issues of importance and clinical relevance. The selection of topics and authors, and the editing of the chapters, have resulted in an interesting and useful book. Dr. JoAnne Micale Foody is to be congratulated, and her book added to the short list of valuable texts for clinicians on preventive cardiology." -Preventive Cardiology

"This is a multiauthored reference on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of and preventive strategies for coronary artery disease. … Cardiologists, primary care providers, trainees, and midlevel practitioners caring for those at risk for coronary artery disease are the intended audience. … The graphs and tables, which include risk factor modification guidelines, are useful for quick reference during daily practice. This book can be used daily by the intended audience for primary and secondary prevention of coronary artery disease." (Gary A Daniel, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2008)
