Dr. Khan is a terrific writer, and his book on heart health is the best I’ve read—clear, focused, and friendly. I intend to read it regularly to maintain my heart. I was especially happy to see him point to depression as a problem. As I would put it, the soul, not just the body, can have a heart attack.
