If you would be so kind as to respond and tell us what you thought about the book and please include suggestions for improvement.

      This is my first post. Until I read this book, I did not know what was going on with my body. Not only did I gain understanding about the disease, but it led to questions that I was able to ask of the cardiologist. I presented the cardiologist with a book and he asked for ten more books to share with patients (hopefully with his partners too).

      Thank you.
      You never know what's going to happen next...Make the best of it!
