KIRKUS REVIEW

A very able discussion of coronary disease is meant to ""supplement"" not ""replace"" your doctor's guidance and is intended for those who have had symptoms of this disease- confirmed or unconfirmed- and for members of their household. The physiology of coronary sclerosis, hypertension, angina pectoris, and the heart attack; the causes (tension, exertion, overeating); and the countermeasures- drugs, liquors, surgery- only rarely, and- primarily- slowing up; and a few last words about functional symptoms.... Protective, preventative medicine which will find a healthy market.
