Summary, etc.:
"While heart disease has been around for a long time, the type of heart disease people have, why they have it, and how it's treated is changing. And with treatments of heart disease altering the very definitions of human life and death, there is no better time to look at the present and future of heart disease, the doctors and nurses who treat it, the patients and caregivers who live with it, and the stories they hold close to their chests. In [this book], the journey to rid the world of heart disease is shown to be reflective of the journey of medical science at large. We are learning that women have as much heart disease as men, but that women experience their type of heart disease differently than men. We are learning that heart disease and cancer may have more in common than we thought. And we are learning how human evolution itself may have led to the epidemic of heart disease. In understanding how our knowledge of the heart evolved, State of the Heart traces the twisting and turning road that science has taken--filled with potholes and blind turns--all the way back to its very origin."--Dust jacket.
