The InVision Guide to a Healthy Heart: Regain Your Cardiovascular Health, Learn Valuable Prevention Strategies, Live Longer and Feel Better

Alexander Tsiaras, Author , text by Shirley Chan, foreword by Mehmet C. Oz. Collins $19.95 (118p) ISBN 978-0-06-085593-2

By using cutting-edge visual technology to illustrate the harmful effects of smoking, stress, lack of exercise, a poor diet and other well-established risk factors associated with heart disease, Tsiaras, an artist and the CEO of Anatomical Travelogue, a company that produces health-related multimedia products, clearly would rather show than tell. Whether it's a dramatic image of ruptured blood vessels caused by high blood sugar or a shot of an unhealthy retina damaged by hypertension, a picture may well be worth a thousand words. These pictures are so good, however, that the text tends to be overshadowed and fall flat. While this book is stunning to look at, there is actually very little new information concerning how to achieve the subtitle's promises. Interested readers will have likely heard, if not seen, much of it before. (Nov. 1)
