From Library Journal Reed (medicine, Morehouse Sch. of Medicine) and Hudson (vice chair, cardiothoracic surgery, Rockford Health Syst., IL) aim to educate African Americans about hypertension and related illnesses, in which they specialize. In straightforward language, they explain the condition, its symptoms (or lack thereof), and various treatment options, including drug therapy and alternative therapies. Most helpful are the "In a Nutshell" capsules located at the end of each chapter. Of note, Chapter 8, titled "Prayer and Healing," promotes spirituality as a means of controlling stress, which is a major cause of high blood pressure. Here, they go so far as to suggest specific passages from the Bible, which will be helpful to Christians but may put off others. That aside, the information, combined with many well-drawn and complete illustrations, is accessible to patrons of most reading comprehension levels. Recommended for public libraries and consumer health collections that serve African American communities.
