Four Books About Heart Disease You Should Read

Posted on August 08, 2020

Thousands of members of MyHeartDiseaseTeam connect with one another and read each other's stories to gain perspective and validation about living with heart disease. Another way to discover how to live better with heart disease is through books written by people who have this condition. We combed through member book recommendations and collected a list of the most popular.

1. State of the Heart: Exploring the History, Science, and Future of Cardiac Disease by Haider Warraich
Heart disease is the leading cause of death around the world—why are we not talking about it more? This fascinating read explores the different phenotypes of the disease in men and women, what heart disease means physiologically, and the future of medicine.


2. A Woman's Guide to Living with Heart Disease by Carolyn Thomas
Heart disease and heart attacks have a very different manifestation in women than in men, but most of the symptoms we discuss are male-researched. Carolyn Thomas, a heart attack survivor, shares everything you need to know to prevent and manage heart disease as a woman.

3. Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure by Esselstyn Jr. M.D. and Caldwell B.
Dr. Esselstyn proposes a revolutionary concept: that we can abolish heart disease in America by changing what we eat. Based on his 20-year study on nutrition, he sees an end to invasive surgeries, no matter how far the disease has progressed.

4. Beat the Heart Attack Gene: The Revolutionary Plan to Prevent Heart Disease, Stroke, and Diabetes by Bale Bradley M.D.
Heart Disease is the leading cause of death around the world, and one risk factor cannot be controlled: your genetics. But even if it runs in the family, a diagnosis is preventable. Through easy quizzes for people of all backgrounds, you can get to know what could be causing your heart disease, a step overlooked by many doctors.

Check out some book recommendations and favorites from Members of MyHeartDiseaseTeam:
