Here's the solution: From Joseph C. Piscatella, one of the longest-surviving bypass patients in the U.S.—31 years and counting—comes a supportive, generous, think-positive book that shares the secret of his extraordinary success. This is the stuff that kept Joe going—a year-long selection of motivational stories, inspirations, quotes, wisdom, meditations, tips, and more. When it's 5:00 A.M. and raining outside and you're tempted to skip that morning jog, remember "runner" Bob Ireland, a Vietnam vet who lost both legs in the war yet finished the New York marathon using only his arms, the first person ever to do so. Think little things don't make a difference? Take a lesson from golf: An average of less than 1.5 strokes per round in the 2002 season made a $5.6 million difference in earnings between #1 golfer (Tiger Woods) and #10 golfer (Sergio Ggarcia).
And why a book of everyday entries? "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing—that's why we recommend it daily."—Zig Ziglar.
In The Healthy Heart Cookbook, Joe Piscatella, a heart patient himself, who has turned his life and health around by following a healthy diet, 700 of the BEST recipes from Joseph C. Piscatella’s five cookbooks (which have more than 2,000,000 copies in print and are used by more than 5,500 hospitals).

Based on guidelines from the American Heart Association, each recipe includes nutritional breakdowns, and the 1000-plus-entry fat-gram counter for common foods makes healthy substitutions a breeze.
