Summary, etc.:
"Soon after she recovered from a major heart attack, public relations specialist Carolyn Thomas turned her talents to learning and blogging about heart disease in women--and, now, to writing a book based on her extensive knowledge of heart disease in women and her own experience and the experiences of other women with the disease. Her more than 600 Heart Sisters blog posts have attracted 5 million+ views from readers in 190 countries. Several of the posts have been re-published internationally, including in the British Medical Journal. She has been an invited participant at Mayo Clinic's medical conference on women's heart disease, and her story has been picked up by WSJ, NPR, CBS TV and radio, among other places. This evidence-based book combines the personal, emotional, and medical to create an engaging and timely view of women's heart health and disease"-- Provided by publisher.
Heart disease kills more women every year than all forms of cancer combined. Recovering from a major heart attack, Thomas wrote this book based on her own experience and the experiences of other women with the disease, compiled through blog posts and Thomas's experiences as a participant at Mayo Clinic's medical conference on women's heart disease. She explains how to recognize the early signs, explains why so many women are misdiagnosed, and covers to what to expect during your recovery.
