Best Non-fiction Book That I Have Read?

Last October I was in Calvary hospital, Hobart, for revision of an artificial hip. My cardiovascular system decided to play a few games with the result that I was referred to Cardiology. After a battery of tests I was informed by Mr Warrick Bishop that I was suffering from Atrial Fibrillation. This charming gentleman briefly explained what that is and prescribed a treatment regime which I am still following. He did mention that he had written a book on the subject!
Recently, after a completing a messy move to Burnie, I purchased a copy of Warrick's book and once I started reading it I couldn't put it down! It is a masterpiece of form and function approaching the topic from different perspectives and absolutely demystifying a complex subject - this is from someone who gave up biology in 2nd year of high school! Interestingly I find answers to medical situations that had arisen with my parents and with other people of a similar vintage. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is also available as a Kindle eBook which is great for having to hand and preserving my copy of the excellent hardback version.

A clear and concise explanation that is really helpful to non-medical people, without being condescendingly over-simple

This book successfully explains a complex subject in language that a normal intelligent person can understand. As a person with the condition, it has helped me understand the causes, and what contribution I myself can make to minimise the effects. It also assisted me to fully comprehend the cocktail of pharmacies proposed and implemented by my specialist doctor. The writer clarifies how each piece of the jigsaw works in combination to enable me to continue enjoying a satisfactory lifestyle, while minimising the chance of dangerous medical emergencies caused by the AF condition.
