  • Books on this condition

    Hi all,

    Yesterday while navigating this website (after becoming a member) I found a link to a book which explains more about this condition. Today I cant seem to find it. Can anyone please point me back to it?

    Also when I tried to purchase it yesterday it kept on giving me a java error. It also mentioned that the book is free for members of this association? Do I get it for free? Even if it is not free I want to buy it so any info would be helpful. I want to send it to my parents and sister back home so that they can learn more about her condition.

    Trust me there is so much ignorance there about this, it's unbeleivable.

    Thanks all,

    Hi Chetan,
    You will find the book on the membership page( when you first enter the sight it is at the top , the red bar.) The name of the book is, "HCM for Patients their Families and Interested Physcians". You are correct , when you join the association , and pay the membership,the book is free. If you have any problems with trying to proceed with the purchase call the HCMA office directly or send a PM to Lisa. It is a wonderfull book and yes you do want to have it.
    Take care, Pam
