From the Heart: A Woman's Guide to Living Well with Heart Disease

After undergoing emergency bypass surgery at age forty-two, Kathy Kastan found her world shifting in unexpected ways. Everything-her sense of well-being, relationships, daily routine, even her body image-seemed to change. Doctors helped her recover physically, but she had to find new methods to recover emotionally and create a happy, healthy life. In From the Heart, Kastan combines her personal experience and expertise as a therapist with stories from scores of other women with heart disease, creating an essential resource that will help women reduce stress, give up hard-tobreak habits, adapt to new lifestyles-and thrive again.
