Treating Type a Behavior--and Your Heart
For over a decade, "Type A" has been a household term, thanks in large part to Meyer Friedman, M.D., co-author of the original bestselling Type A Behavior and Your Heart. Now, in collaboration with Diane Ulmer, R.N., M.S., Dr. Friedman tells Type A personalities -- the more than half of urban American males (and a growing number of females) driven by compulsive time urgency, aggressive competitiveness, and free-floating hostility -- how to reduce their alarmingly high risk of coronary heart disease. Based on an exhaustive four year study, Treating Type A Behavior -- And Your Heart reveals: -- How to spot the Type A personality -- in yourself, your family, or your friends -- How adjusting to life in the slow lane can free you from the threat of heart attack -- How the wrong diet can be a quick killer -- The deadly pitfalls of exercise -- How changing your work habits, your emotional responses, even your speech patterns, can mean both a longer -- and a happier -- life.
