Overview
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." 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.
