How to Prevent Your Next Heart Attack

John K. Vyden, Author Prentice Hall $17.45 (220p) ISBN 978-0-13-430661-2
Vyden, a clinical associate professor of medicine at UCLA, supplies a comprehensible guide to hospitalization, convalescence and rehabilitation for the heart attack victim. This solid resource encourages patient involvement and self-knowledge as integral to the healing process (""under these circumstances, ignorance is definitely not bliss''). Vyden is upbeat and inspiring as he walks the reader through all aspects of the disease, including how the heart works and what causes a heart attack, what happens during an attack, how to prevent a future attack, related conditions (angina, arrhythmias, etc.), what to expect during a hospital stay, medication, risk factors, diet, exercise, sex, the psychology of healing, and maintenance. Illustrated. (February 24)
