Clear, concise information whiich informs and reassures. A wealth of questions answered in a straight-forward style that neither patronises nor is too complicated to understand. Anyone who has concerns about blood pressure need only buy this little book to learn all about it, either before or after your GP visit. Well worth every penny.

Prof. Beevers is the 'stephen hawking' of Blood Pressure.He takes a subject that has a lot of confusion around it and clarifies it brilliantly.
This is such a concise read it beats all others.No medical knowlege required it's that good with excellent diagrams .
It explains what high blood pressure is , what are the effects(in conjunction with other risks which is very important) and most importantly what can be done about it both medically and with lifestyle changes.He doesn't push the medical route but gives information about all treatment options.
Reassuring words regarding all aspects which is what you want.
I work in medicine and i was confused until i read this . A little bible of blood pressure and cheap to boot !

Covers the basics in a clear, concise manner. Not much of a story to it, but, if you want the facts they are laid before you in an authoritative manner which never gets too medical.

Clear, concise and very informative. Where the book doesn't have all the detail you may require, specific to your circumstances, it is an excellent overview and provides an informed starting point for further reading. Thoroughly recommended.

After being diagnosed with an illness I believe that the more knowledge a person has then it makes it easier to accept and make changes if possible in ones life. Very informative and helpful.
