"Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack" This Book Could Save Your Life

What Is This Book About?

As a cardiologist, I have not yet met a patient who expected to have a problem; patients do not put into their diaries “possible problem with my heart next week”. Yet, what if we could be forewarned about, or prepared for, a potential problem with our coronary arteries? … What if we could plan NOT to have a heart attack?    

Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack is the first-of-its-kind, offering a balanced and referenced discussion of coronary risk assessment using modern technology. 

This book will empower you as an individual to choose how you want to deal with your risk of the single biggest killer in the western world.

Prevention Is Better Than Cure - Easy Read

The book is clear, concise, and lays out a plan to be proactive in preventing a heart attack. It was quite easy to follow and understand. This comprehensive book will not only serve as a wake-up call for many but also save lives. I now have an interest in a CCTI where I didn't before.

The book explains the functions of the heart and how plaque is formed in the arteries and then how to detect and treat it. His primary focus, of course, is on prevention of heart disease and how you can accomplish that.

I feel much more comfortable talking to my doctor about this subject. I am much more prepared to hold an honest and informative discussion.

I also think that he didn't write to his potential reader base. Americans will not comprehend most of the notations for the lipid panel values. Might have noted American notations as well. He lost me there throughout.

Disclaimer: I was offered this book in exchange for my honest opinion of it.

An easy to understand proactive approach to prevent cardio problems

This book is a must for anyone who has a history of cardio problems in their family or are experiencing problems of their own. In fact, if you aren't sure, you need to read this book anyway. I learned more about my heart, various tests and results than I would ever have imagined in this short and concise book. I am not a doctor and all the details and test results seem to blur for me. In this book Dr. Warrick provides cases and outlines test results compared to what would be ideal. I can now use this book as a guide when I review my results. More importantly though is that Dr. Warrick lays out a path to using CT scans to proactively prevent heart attacks rather than just treating the disease after you have one. Ironically, after I started reading this book, I developed a (non-heart) medical issue based on traditional medical test results in which a CT scan was used to further determine whether there was an actual issue. If works for one part of the body, why not for cardio as well? This is a great read presented in a very easy to understand format. I am grateful for having had the opportunity to read this book. It is a great reference book to have on hand.

Thorough Information But More Terms and Medical Jargon than I Expected

I respect the author's extensive research and expertise about the heart. The book was packed with information--but I couldn't embrace it. I was looking forward to receiving info that spoke to me as a layman. From the title alone, I expected more clear and, dare I say, more entertaining guidance and advice. I'm not a medical expert so when the text jumped right into the bulk medical jargon--, it just simply wasn't what I expected. After some personal research, I will tackle it again.
Full Disclosure: The author provided me with an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
