Dr. Khan has distilled the complexities of heart disease to make them easily understandable by the layperson—our patients. It is well-written, informative, and fun to read. It offers excellent advice, which reflects the experience and good judgment of the author. I highly recommend this for all patients with heart and vascular problems.
