)-- The Simplified Handbook for Living with Heart Disease and other Chronic Diseases by Warren Selkow and Donna Selkow:
“A no-holds-barred, front-row account that every heart patient should read…thought- provoking, amusing, hard-hitting and direct. I will give it to all my cardiac patients.”
- Dr. Edward Kowaleski, medical director, Banner Arizona Medical Clinic, Peoria, AZ
To high acclaim, The Simplified Handbook for Living with Heart Disease and Other Chronic Diseases by Warren Selkow and Donna Selkow has won the Writers’ Digest 2010 International Book Award in the non-fiction Health General category. Read the reviews at www.simplehand.org.
This blunt, comprehensive guide teaches readers and caregivers about heart disease and diet, about heart disease and exercise, how to care for patients with heart disease, how to survive open-heart surgery, and how to live with heart disease for the long haul.
Vetted for accuracy by numerous medical doctors and others in the medical profession, the book also covers chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, renal failure, and diabetes, since many patients suffer from multiple diseases that require the same treatment.
“More than a third of Americans suffer from one of these diseases,” emphasizes Warren. “We have a lot of work to do, but I sum it all up in five words: good health through intelligent compliance.”
Warren and Donna wrote The Simplified Handbook for Living with Heart Disease and Other Chronic Diseases after they discovered the “paucity” of information available to them after Warren’s life-changing surgeries and their realization that his status as a cardiac patient was permanent. As Warren explains, a significant number of cardiologists and internists believe the most challenging part of treatment is properly informing the patient of what to do to be – and stay – well.
To further their work, Warren and Donna are working to set up a not-for-profit called Simple Hand. For more information, contact the authors at email@example.com or visit www.simplehand.org.
The Simplified Handbook for Living with Heart Disease and Other Chronic Diseases may be purchased at www.amazon.com or www.simplehand.org. Review copies are available for sources interested in follow-up with the author.

Authors: Warren Selkow, a survivor of two open-heart surgeries, is a former IT business executive who thought for many years that living fully meant ignoring his health and eating whatever he wanted. He was wrong but he lived (twice) to tell about it. Donna Selkow, Warren’s wife and caregiver, was called upon to provide the day-to-day care to ensure his survival.
