A renowned physician and medical scientist reveals the secrets of heart disease—uncovered through 50 years of clinical investigation—that have revolutionized current management of heart disease and may eliminate it in the future. Richly illustrated with individual patient and experimental details, the book also weaves in the dramatic story of the development of the first drug approved specifically for African Americans, and how politics and misguided accusations of racism have tragically inhibited widespread use of this life-saving therapy.
