SEE GLOWING REVIEWS ON FIRST EDITION FROM US, CANADA, ENGLAND AND ITALY. As Dr. Michael F. Roizen, author, lead co-author with Dr. Oz on many books, and chief wellness officer at Cleveland Clinic, says: "This is a great book, and great adventure well told, with important information as well as a fast exciting read." Readers from this and other countries have been very laudable. A reader in London, England stated the book was "easy reading and] highly informative," while a reader in Italy found the book "a great story and much very useful information." A reader in Canada was very praiseworthy in stating: "a guide from someone who's been there and who writes with a human and friendly perspective." A cancer nurse and administrator in the USA stated: "I will be incorporating his Ted's] work into my practice." Another US resident wrote: "Ted's philosophy of life and approach to understanding that you are not your disease helped change my life." This resident went on the say: "I wouldn't have receive the same level of care in the hospital] without knowing the inside track on what was needed as a patient." This is a book that transcends nationality and illness and offers many insights to life, health and rights. The FIRST HALF of the book deals with Ted's medical journey of surviving multiple heart attacks, bypass operations, and 42 years later a heart transplant. It is also a story of hope and finding joy in life despite life's limitations. The SECOND HALF discusses the secrets of surviving and maneuvering within the medical community. For example, you are far better off not having elective surgery in a teaching hospital during the month of July, because that is when the new interns arrive. Ted discusses how you deal with your illness determines how others will react to you. If you are comfortable and can put others at ease, they will deal with you as a person and not as an illness living within a person. Finally, Ted reviews such subjects as sex, dating, divorce, health insurance, American with Disability Act, what to tell your employer, medical leave laws, health care directives, paying medical bills, appealing medical bills, and many more health issues.
