“One of the most outstanding projects in health research of the past century. It's relevant, it's caring, it's innovative, it's extremely well executed and it's very, very useful."
—T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., author of The China Study
“Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has directed pioneering research demonstrating that the progression of even severe coronary heart disease can often be reversed by making comprehensive change in diet and lifestyle.“
—Dean Ornish, M.D, founder, president and director of Preventive Medicine Research Institute and author of Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease
“I highly recommend Dr. Esselstyn’s book.”
—Kathy Freston, author of Veganist
“Dr. Esselstyn has always been ahead of his time. His focus on the healing powers of proper nutrition on diseased coronary arteries has now proven right, raising another unthinkable notion—that heart patients can cure themselves.”
—Bernadine Healy, M.D., former Director of the National Institutes of Health
“A hard nosed scientist shows us his secrets for successfully cleaning the rusting arteries of so many patients - and it doesn't even hurt.”
—Mehmet Oz, M.D., coauthor, You: The Owner’s Manual
“Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., is certainly the father (and the mother) of the now proven hypothesis that you can reverse severe arterial disease (including severe disease of the arteries supposed to nourish your heart). He proved that radical changes in diet (and that alone) cause radical changes in the age and disease of your arteries—and that you can make your arteries much younger. So even if you only want to try this plan five days a week, this book is a must purchase because of its great recipes that spice low fat plant based food to high taste—you may even want to enjoy (and know I am using that word specifically and as intentionally as the proposal I made to my wife 33 years ago) the recipes all 7 days."
—Michael Roizen, M.D., coauthor of YOU: The Owner's Manual and YOU: On A Diet. The Owner's Manual to Waist Management
"This powerful program will make you virtually heart-attack proof. Based on decades of research, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has shown not only how to prevent heart disease, but how to reverse it-even for people who have been affected for many years. I strongly recommend this important book."
—Neal D. Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and author of Breaking the Food Seduction
"If you have heart disease, this book should be essential reading. It could save your life."
—Michael F. Jacobson, Executive Director, Center for Science in the Public Interest
“Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease provides a practical approach for people to regain their lost health. Considering the worldwide prevalence of coronary artery disease this book should become the bestseller of all times."
—John McDougall, M.D., author of The McDougall Program
“Dr. Esselstyn’s solution in Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease is as profound as Newton’s discovery of gravity. Half of all Americans dying today could have changed their date with the undertaker by following Dr. Esselstyn’s plan.”
—Howard F. Lyman, author of No More Bull! and Mad Cowboy
“Dr. Esselstyn's eminently successful arrest-and-reversal therapy for heart disease through patient education and empowerment as the treatment of choice will send shock waves through a mercenary medical system that focuses largely on pills and procedures.”
—Hans Diehl, Founder & Director of the Coronary Health Improvement Program (CHIP)

My father, grandfather, and great grandfather, all died young from heart attacks. My father being the youngest at 42. For most of my life, I didn't put that much stock in nutrition. (Although I had a mother who did!) Until my running took a bit of a hit in my mid-forties, I thought being fit was much more important than what I ate. I no longer think that way!
I'm sure it will be difficult for many people raised in our North American culture to comprehend the profound changes that will take place within the biochemistry of the human body, with the adoption of a whole foods, plant-based diet. But Dr. Esselstyn has some very impressive angiographic evidence. Along with the patients from his study. And should convince the skeptics, this works!
While I appreciate the simplicity of Dr. Esselstyn's message, I do eat small amounts of wild salmon from time to time, as well as a few raw nuts and seeds. Also, a lot of Caldwell Esselstyn's book, is really his wife Ann's very original recipes.
This book tackles the Why and the How of proper nutrition and how it improves the well being of people with coronary challenges. The documentation of the experiences with his original group pretty well establishes that if they could follow the Dr. Esselstyn's plan any determined person can do it and if they could be healed, the solution is universal.
Personally, I have found it to be a very effective weight loss program that does not require any calorie counting nor limited quantities of the acceptable foods.
About half of this book is filled with some great recipes that are easy to make and very helpful when you need ideas for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I've only tried a few so far, but I plan to do most of them over the next several months. I like that they aren't complicated and that they don't use strange ingredients, just products that I can find in my grocery store.
I've already sent this book to someone as a gift and will probably send out a few more. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is concerned about getting or staying healthy.
was 245 now 187-190 same as went I finish school I shovel 3 hour of snow of my roof last week and 4 hour 3 week before so don't ask if the book good up to now saved my life without operation
Esselstyn's book is simply written, powerfully persuasive and the recipes are easy and nutritious and exactly what is needed for a pending cardiac emergency. I am hoping that I can persuade my friend to read this book and choose life.
