Vice President Dick Cheney is one of the most well-known cardiac patients in the world. When he suffered his first heart attack in 1978,Cheney received essentially the same treatment as President Eisenhower after his heart attack in 1955. Since then, coronary care has rapidly evolved, and Cheney has reaped the benefits of new cardiac technology every step of the way,to the point where one medical reporter for the New York Times even called him"a poster boy for modern cardiac care." Yet Cheney’s health struggles are not unique. Over 80 million Americans live with some form of heart disease. Told through the alternating narratives of Cheney and his longtime cardiologist Dr. Jonathan Reiner, Heart will trace the history of cardiology over the past forty years through the Vice President’s own personal story. Each chapter will contain both voices, balancing cutting-edge science with medical anecdote. By revealing the intimate details behind his five heart attacks, numerous correct surgeries and most recently, his heart transplant, Cheney will offer hope for a full life for millions of coronary patients throughout the world.
