I am a 58 yr old woman who had no problems and all of a sudden collapsed and had a heart rate of 15 and had to have a pacemaker. I saw this book advertised on the Pacemaker Club website. I ordered it and it was extremely beneficial. I knew very little about why it happened or how to live with it. This book told me what I could do and not do and things to look out for. Very very valuable to me living with a pacemaker. I have had mine for 7 months. About two months ago an 80 year old lady who is a friend of mine told me she was going to have a pacemaker. I loaned her my book and let her read it. She loved it and asked me to order one for her. This order is the one for her. So there are two happy customers with this book.

I use this book as a reference all the time. Thank you for having it

The title of the book says "Owner's Manual". It implies you might need it after having a pacemaker installed. Don't wait. If you take an active role in managing your own health, you need to read this book before having a pacemaker installed. I've just had a pacemaker installed and the book was a priceless source of information.

Physically, the book is about the size of a "Reader's Digest" and is done in a fairly large print. It's clearly written and well organized. Easy reading.

The author carefully explains what makes hearts need pacemakers and the various kinds of pacemakers in use.

She gives a description of what it's like to have a pacemaker installed. More importantly, she explains the care of a newly installed pacemaker. Turns out it's easy to screw up a pacemaker when it's freshly installed. (You cannot put your arms above your head because you could tear out the leads. You should not keep feeling the bulge caused by the pacemaker.)

I appreciated the author's thorough listing of restrictions with pacemakers. Every restriction is carefully explained along with the reasoning behind it. ( You ought not to go swimming wearing certain kinds of pacemakers. And you can't drive, commercially, wearing some types of pacemakers.) Fortunately, after getting used to a few protective routines, (such as no "contact sports") pacemakers are pretty non intrusive for years after installation.

Again, I'm writing this review 2 days after receiving a pacemaker. The book was an immense help.

This was the best book for the information and very easy to understand and use. I am a new pacemaker person and this was just the book to help me to understand what I needed for getting use to a pacemaker. It has all the information for understanding what I needed to know and where to get further information as well as links to sites on the web. The initial and useful information will be very good for the future.
