Back to Life After a Heart Crisis

Winner of a Book for a Better Life Award and Wall Street Journal Book of the Year.

Marc Wallack, MD, initially asked me to help him write a memoir about how he ran a marathon after his bypass surgery. After talking with him for a while, though, I said, “I think you have a more important book in you.” Back to Life After a Heart Crisis is part memoir, part prescriptive. It’s the first book that delves into the emotional side of heart disease–What if the big one hits tonight? What if the big one hits while I’m having sex? What if the big one hits while I am driving my car? Wallack’s wife Jamie Colby, a FOX news anchor, shared caregiver tips and recipes. The end result is a step-by-step guide that heart disease survivors can use to go from hospital to the rest of their lives.
