KIRKUS REVIEW

By the author of several popularizations on heart disease, angina pectoris, old age, etc. this is again a doctor's general advice to the layman on a specific condition, one which is very prevalent today. The aim here is to transform the hypertensive into a more satisfied person, to make him accept -- rather than treat- his disease, to make him forget the height or depth of his blood pressure, which after all is only symptomatic. Attitudes to cultivate, taking it easy, not feeling too well or too ambitious, controlling your reactions, learning to relax, to sleep; common symptoms, types of examination, diet, the effect of alcohol, tobacco, stimulants; operations vs medication, etc. Non-alarmist advice for those who insist on knowing more about their condition. The marketability of the previous titles should be a gauge for this.
