The purpose of this booklet is to provide you with information about heart disease and recovery after suffering a heart attack. The development of heart disease is naturally accompanied by many fears. “Will I die?” “What about my job?” “My family still needs me. What will they do?” “Can I still be active?” Most people with heart disease return to a full and normal life. Learning about heart disease is the first step and we hope this booklet will be helpful in that regard.

The table of contents has been provided below as a sample of the subject matter.
