KIRKUS REVIEW

Exercise may well be the hub of the wheel of prevention around which the spokes of other available measures naturally revolve."" The circumlocution aside, what Dr. Graham says very convincingly, as well as (to our knowledge) innovationally, is that exercise not only controls weight but releases tension, two of the most important factors in checking the king killer. Dr. Graham sets a thirty minute limit (anyway--to begin with) with a desirable 450 calorie expenditure; recommends anything from inplace running to more recreational sports; programs all thoroughly; condemns smoking and drinking (""that little nip"" is not good for the heart). Coronary disease is steadily increasing; so are books about it; but this one seems hopefully, helpfully different.
