Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0761514473, Paperback)

Dr. Kwiterovich has seen things that are painful to even read about, things like young adults with orange protrusions the size of baseballs growing on their elbows because of super-high cholesterol levels. But from such experiences at the extremes, he has come to understand heart disease as few others do. The Johns Hopkins Complete Guide is indispensable for people who are at risk of early heart attack: people with high cholesterol levels, a family history of early deaths from heart disease, sedentary lives, and/or bad health habits such as smoking. Even if you have no reason to think you're in that club, you may find the chapters on diet and nutrition fascinating, especially with all the mythology circulating about the magic of fish oils (he's for eating fish, against fish-oil supplements). But if you do have heart-disease risk factors, you'll find crucial information here: not only thorough explanations of the connection between cholesterol and heart attacks, but also a cholesterol-lowering diet with recipes. --Lou Schuler
