Every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans survive heart attacks. The journey back to a normal life is not always easy. In THE SILENT HEART, author Larry J. Matthews provides a road map of the physical and emotional obstacles encountered on his personal journey through the ten months following his heart attack and cardiac arrest.
In this memoir, Matthews offers an intimate look into the mind of a heart attack survivor, sharing the events and his thoughts and feelings after his heart stopped beating. Combining personal experience with medical facts and reflections from his family, THE SILENT HEART shows the realities of heart disease, heart attacks, and rehabilitation as they affect not only the patient, but loved ones as well.
THE SILENT HEART gives hope and encouragement to those facing the same hurdles in their lives by presenting firsthand insight into one man's personal experience, the road to recovery, and the goal of practicing heart-healthy living.
