A competent, detailed description of the coronary risk factors written for the lay reader. A happy antidote to the distasteful and dangerous quick-fix nonsense that floods the health shelves.

He is not unrealistically optimistic, but gives hopeful advice for those at risk. No bibliography. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
