In this information-packed book, Piscatella (The Road to a Healthy Heart Runs through the Kitchen, 2005) and cardiac rehab specialist Franklin give concrete advice on how to live a heart-healthy life. They�ve got a big potential audience. Cardiovascular disease affects half the U.S. population. From the first pages, they hook readers with interesting tidbits. For instance, the risk of heart attack is greatest between 6 a.m. and noon, and while the risk of being murdered is 1 in 10,000, the risk of dying of cardiovascular disease is 1 in 3. Coffee (about two cups a day) is OK, since it�s loaded with disease-fighting antioxidants. Some of the 109 things to do seem obvious (Keep your weight down and Be smart about snacks), and some require a visit to Wikipedia (Control your Fibrinogen level). Still, the book gives largely understandable explanations of the alphabet soup of heart-disease terms. And Piscatella, who had bypass surgery in 1977, is truly a motivational guide. --Karen Springen
