He provides good detail on why Dean Ornish's work is so limited, with specifics on the outcomes from that famous study.
This guy is doing great work on empowering people to look after their health (inexpensively) and reverse coronary heart disease. If you want to avoid heart attacks and live a long and healthy and happy life, follow his guidance. If you smoke and don't ever want to give up, then he's not for you.
The book was given to me from a friend as a gift, and it truly is a GIFT.I in turn am purchasing it is a gift for close friends and recommending it to others as I have never recommended a book before.

This book ties everything together, the correct diet, supplements, exercise, prescription drugs, and explains everything so it is easy to understand and why each are important to your lipid makeup, plaque deposition potential, and the health of your endothelium (I never even knew what this was before).
In the two months I have been following the recommendations outlined by Dr. Davis I have lost over 20lbs and have much more energy and mental focus. My blood pressure has gone down (even while exercising) and I am able to exercise much longer and more intensely. Most importantly my good protective HDL cholesterol has gone up 25% in two short months!
People with active heart disease or family risk factors need to read this rather than living with the uncertainty of what their future will hold for them. Believe me when I tell you, I understand the feeling of not knowing everyday when I awoke if the "ticking time bomb" was going to go off soon. Get educated and pro-active in your heart health. This is the perfect book and starting point. I was finally frightened enough to research the topic and stick with the solution. You can too!
The book is written in plain English and an engaging style, and makes the technical concepts easily understood, even to people (like me) with no medical background.
The author advocates the use of non-invasive, low-radiation, widely available heart scans to determine the extent of coronary plaque. If plaque is found, he next explains the use of new cholesterol tests that analyze cholesterol in more detail than standard tests. Finally, he explains what to do to correct the abnormalities the detailed analysis may uncover.
The book will be of most interest to people who are willing to take control of their health and who may even be willing to challenge their doctors to catch up with recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease. The book is bluntly critical of the traditional cardiology strategies employed today in most hospitals and cardiology practices. As noted by another reviewer, he does advocate taking some supplements, but also tells you which supplements he thinks are worthless, based on reviews of numerous studies and his own experience treating hundreds of patients.
I found this book in my post-stent implant procedure investigation of the state of the art in heart disease treatment (I'm 50 years old). I wish I had found it and read it years earlier. I might have avoided having had the stent implanted to begin with. Thankfully, it's not too late to start applying the strategies he advocates.
If you want to see the future of preventive heart medicine today, explained in understandable, practical terms and concepts, this is the book to get.
I was very disappointed to find this out after reading it!!!
I can not understand how they can still sell it if it lacks the new and really important information that makes the previous incomplete and not really useful!
