TITLE:  "Take A Load Off Your Heart"
AUTHOR:  Piscatella J, Franklin B
LENGTH:  380 pages
LIST PRICE:  $14.95

Coronary artery disease is still a huge problem in the US. (Just ask lead author Joe Piscatella: he had a heart attack in his 30's.) This is unfortunate because heart attacks (myocardial infarctions) are highly preventable with proper diet and regular exercise. Mandatory reading for those with risk factors for heart disease!
