The chief objection to this book is its title. In the opening chapter the author states that by "curable" he means that which may be made much better and not necessarily all better. Yet one cannot escape the conviction that the title is designed to stimulate the interest of the prospective purchaser. The author writes in language which the layman can understand concerning the various types of heart disease and their management. He emphasizes the importance of early symptoms and urges prompt medical attention in order that a proper regimen may be planned for the individual case. He also offers sound advice to the person who has the fear of heart disease rather than the disease itself. On the whole the book should prove helpful to the person who wishes to know something of the nature of heart disease and of the way to live with it.
