This book was so out of cardiac integrity in the recipe contents that I couldn't even pass the book on. I tore out recipes that I could modify to come more in line with American Heart Association's recommended Mediterranian diet guidelines. Cardiac recovery is truly a matter of life and death to those of us given second chances. This means those who give advice in any way about it need to be as authentic as possible. Those who write recipes need to be responsible in considering the whole picture of cardiac: low carbs, low fat, low sodium and little beef. I recommend Joe Piscatella's book "The Road To A Healthy Heart Runs Through The Kitchen". Great information and tasty and healthy recipes.

I bought this book as a gift for my parents-- my father recently having had a valve replacement unexpectedly. They have found the cookbook useful, easy, and worthwhile. They certainly don't fit in the "leisure time chef" category but found the cookbook useful and enjoyable.

Eating food that's good for you can be quite frustrating if you haven't learned to be and cook healthy your entire life. This helped.

I am a cookbook fanatic and have probably more than my local library has. Yes, I use them all. Here is the problem with this cookbook. No Visuals. I like to know what my meal should look like. Also ingridients I never heard of.
Since I will not use the book that often it will go in my next garage sale. Sorry!

I tried a couple of the receipes and they weren't very good.. so I adjusted them and they worked ok..There was not alot of info about heart related dietary needs so it will be a sometime cookbook. I prefer cookbooks on a binder spiral so they are easier to use.

I found this book to be helpful at a frightening time for us. I am the cook and prior to my husband's heart surgery we enjoyed food that paid little attention to health issues. That changed fast and access to this reasonable book was helpful.

My mother recently had double bypass surgery. Upon her return home she was very depressed with the prospects of never enjoying a good meal again due to all the restrictions the doctor gave her. This book gave her the motivation to push forward onto a healthy lifestyly where she could still enjoy meals. Very informative.

Not as good as expected. There are better cookbooks on the market for Heat Healthy cooking than this one. It does give an in-depth explanation of why the changes in diet are needed and how they effect your heart, but so do the better cookbooks.
