I saw one review on GoodReads saying they wish they had the paperback version to make it easier to bring into the kitchen. I wish I had bought the hardcover edition, so it would be easier to read and wouldn't now be falling apart. In terms of contents, this is excellent, and not just for heart patients (which I'm not) but for anyone who wants to eat healthy without resorting to tasteless eating. Lot's of international options. Take the Poultry section. There are 44 recipes, almost all featuring chicken though there's "Curried Turkey with Water Chestnuts," "Turkey Mousse," and "Roast Stuffed Cornish Game Hen" and Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Indian, Israeli, Creole, Italian, Spanish dishes--even pot pies and crepes. So more varied than you might think. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0307352056, Paperback)

This 25th-anniversary edition of the classic, bestselling cookbook contains 600 heart-healthy recipes, 150 of them brand-new. The book has been updated to reflect the use of nonfat and low-fat ingredients that didn't exist just a few years ago. Recipes include appetizers, snacks, beverages, soups, salads, entrées (seafood, poultry, meat, vegetarian), vegetables, side dishes, sauces, breads, breakfasts, and, of course, desserts. Many are healthier versions of old favorites--such as Eggplant Parmesan, Chicken à la King, Sweet and Sour Pork, Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Devil's Food Cake, and Chocolate Chip Cookies--with some new entries that reflect modern eating trends, like Portobello Mushroom Wrap with Yogurt Curry Sauce, Pad Thai, Curried Quinoa Salad with Cranberries and Almonds, and Artichoke and Chick-Pea Pilaf. Whether you want a quick meal, a nutritious dinner the whole family will enjoy, or a festive entrée to impress guests, this book has an array of choices.

Most recipes reflect AHA guidelines: no more than 30 percent total fat, 8 to 10 percent saturated fat, less than 300 milligrams of cholesterol per day; plenty of vegetables and grains; and moderate sugar and sodium. Some recipes are higher in fat, but you balance those with lower-fat recipes on other days of the week. Nutritional information includes calories, protein, carbohydrates, cholesterol, fat (total, saturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated), fiber, and sodium. --Joan Price
