Forty percent of women die of heart disease and stroke--more than ten times the number of women who die from breast cancer--according to Mellanie True Hills in her book, A Woman's Guide to Saving Her Own Life: The HEART Program for Health and Longevity. These and other little-known facts about the causes and effects of heart disease in women make this guide a must-read for women of all ages.

A heart survivor herself, Hills tells her own story and uses an informal woman-to-woman style to educate women about heart health. Her book offers easy-to-follow advice on nutrition, exercise, stress, sleep, and identifying the symptoms of heart disease in women. The guide also includes a step-by-step workbook for building a customized plan for heart disease prevention.

Mellanie True Hills is the Founder and CEO of the American Foundation for Women's Health. She provides lifestyle coaching and speaks extensively to spread awareness of heart disease and prevention.

Armchair Interviews says: Life-saving information every woman should know.
