The book provides you with a road map that is tailored to your specific situation, and by which you can track your progress over time. It does so by starting with the broadest categories of types of strokes, and then working toward more narrow conditions within those categories. As you read the book you fill out a chart checking off the conditions that apply to your situation and ignoring those that don't. This way, after you are done reading the book, you will have a set of goals tailored to your situation, and thus will be set on a course to reducing your risk of another stroke. According to the book, you can reduce the risk significantly in most cases.
The book weighs in at about 90 pages and the type is fairly large. The reader will find illustrations, which augment ones understanding of specific conditions.
The book does have medical terminology, but it doesn't overwhelm the reader. What I liked, in fact, was that the writer provided reasons why certain conditions are a problem. For instance, high blood pressure apparently harms the walls of the arteries, which speeds up the process of atherosclerosis. I'd always heard that high blood pressure was bad, but I'd never heard a causal explanation until this book.
