Once again the authors have brought this basic backlist book up to current standards including the newest information available on medication, diet, and exercise. This edition also presents new information about hypertension and the standards recently established for measurement. It is a clear and jargon-free explanation of the role blood pressure plays as a primary indicator of overall health.

The Blood Pressure Book reviews the causes and treatments of high blood pressure and provides guidance on equipment for homemonitoring as well as complete and fully updated references throughout the book and the bibliography.

The advice is broken down into a series of small steps that are easy to take. By the end of the book, these small changes should add up to a way of life that will help get blood pressure down (or keep it from going up) and also improve general health. This is an important reference for anyone with high blood pressure in the family, from young adults to seniors.

Rave Reviews

“As many physicians know all too well, just telling patients what they should do for their health is unlikely to be effective. And that is why we welcome approaches of the type offered by this book. Rather than simply informing people of their risks, and of the measures they should take, The Blood Pressure Book leads its readers into action. It enables them to develop their own custom-made blood pressure control program, step-by-step.”
— John W. Farquhar, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine
