My book, A Woman’s Guide to Living With Heart Disease, published by Johns Hopkins University Press, was Amazon’s #1 New Release in the Medicine/Public Health category, and is already in its second printing!*
Thank you so much to cardiologist Dr. Martha Gulati, Chief of Cardiology at the University of Arizona, Executive Editor of the American College of Cardiology’s CardioSmart, and author of the best-selling book Saving Women’s Hearts, for writing such a beautiful and thoughtful foreword for my book. Here’s a brief excerpt from her pages:
“As a woman who experienced a heart attack, was misdiagnosed, and deals with everything that living with heart disease entails, Carolyn uses humor wrapped in practicality and common sense to help women navigate their disease and all the overwhelming emotions that come with this diagnosis.
“Carolyn has given a voice to the female heart patient in a way that few others have been able to. I am grateful that she decided to write this book, because I believe it will improve the dialogue between heart patients and their physicians.“
