The Simplified Handbook for Living with Heart Disease
and Other Chronic Diseases
The Simplified Handbook for Living with Heart Disease and Other Chronic Diseases is a gift of life to every man and woman living with heart disease. Written by a Warren Selkow, who survived two open-heart surgeries, and Donna Selkow, his wife caregiver, this book is meant to inspire and educate people dealing with heart disease. In a blunt but honest way, the book covers heart disease from initial diagnoses, surgery when required, post-diagnosis lifestyle changes, and moving on with life.
This is not a medical textbook. It is a handbook written for patients and caregivers in plain, simple English. The Selkows, in a straightforward and frequently humorous fashion, provide easy-to-understand information about living with heart disease…from the short to the long term. They also deliver solid information on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), renal failure, and diabetes for people who have multiple chronic diseases.
Having been reviewed, approved and endorsed by over a dozen physicians and other medical professionals, The Simplified Handbook is a resource people can trust. Nothing is held back for readers seeking information about living with heart disease or post surgical survival with keys to living healthy and productive lives. This book is a must read for people who have been diagnosed with heart disease, told they need open heart surgery, or have had open heart surgery. It is also a great resource for caregivers, family members, or others that want to learn how to live with heart disease.
NOTE: Anyone expecting to be coddled should not read this book, because the Selkow’s deliver it straight and tough.
