Not only do strokes kill, they can disable for life - and they're increasing. In this extraordinary book, one of the world's leading cardiovascular scientists sets out a stroke prevention and treatment programme. It includes a groundbreaking risk-assessment questionnaire and a personalised prevention programme. Once you've established your risk of stroke, Wiebers discusses the most up-to-date treatments - lifestyle changes, drugs and surgery. The book is divided into four: understanding a stroke; assessing risk; lowering risk and rehabilitation if you or someone close to you has suffered a stroke.
