Your Heart House by Aarush Manchanda MD is a self-help book filled with detailed information about the heart and the problems associated with it. This book is broken down into eight sections which discuss the six different parts of the heart, its potential problems, and ways of treating those problems.

The book starts with an introduction of how to use the book and an explanation of “Your Heart House”. “Your Heart House” is an analogy the author uses that compares a house to your heart. Then, it goes through a general overview of the heart and its problems. The next three to eight sections take one of the six parts of the heart, like the heart’s rhythm or heartbeat, and explains how it works. Then, it discusses common problems with each part, and what causes these problems. In this case, bradycardia, where the heartbeat is slower than normal, is one of the problems and one of the factors that can cause this is an infection. The diagnoses and treatment options are discussed afterward, and lifestyle tips are included at the end of each chapter. So, one of the ways to diagnose bradycardia is with an EKG or electrocardiogram and to treat it, a pacemaker would be inserted into you. Also, one of the lifestyle tips that the author includes is to stop smoking since smoking exacerbates the problem.

What I liked best about this book were the simple, but detailed explanations of the different parts of the heart and the problems that can plague it. The book is set up in a way that it’s easy to read only a section that you’re interested in. However, I think that reading the entire book would be beneficial for anyone. After all, heart disease is the number one killer in not only the United States but also the world. Most of the information is broken down into very basic terms, but medical terminology is also included. If you are still confused by the medical terminology, there is a glossary in the back of the book that helps to alleviate any confusion.

Moreover, the chapters are short and include vivid illustrations that are simple to follow and comprehend. The illustrations help to enhance the text and there are charts that help to break down information more thoroughly. For example, there is a chart that lists the medical terminology of a heart attack on one side and on the other side explains, in layman’s term, what happens during a heart attack. There is also a mini summary at the end of almost every chapter that helps to condense all the information into a short paragraph. I especially enjoyed the fun facts that were included, like the fact that the heart does the most physical work of any muscle during a lifetime.

Overall, I rate this book a 4 out of 4 stars. I like how the book compares the heart to a house because it helps to simplify something very complex into something that is easy to understand. I also didn’t notice any grammatical errors either. Since heart disease is the number one cause of death in the world, I would recommend this book to everyone, especially to those with a heart problem.

This book is for everyone. A must read. The difference between the Car Alternator and Human heart is the Alternator can be easily replaced. You can have it anywhere when your car needed it. But the heart when something wrong happened and needed to be replaced, so bad if you can find it easily. The book should be out all over the world. Most Medical Doctors should read it. Thanks for the review!

This is relevant with the increasing rate of heart diseases among the younger generation. The illusion that heart ailments are for oldies doesn't stand anymore. Thanks for a lovely review.

A book that speaks about heart disease is such a refreshing read. I could learn a few things about my health from it.
