Product Description
William A. Cooper, MD, MBA, addresses heart disease in an all-new light in his genre-breaking and refreshingly honest first book, "Heart Attack." For many years, heart disease has reigned as the number-one killer of both men and women in the United States. In this fresh take on comprehensive heart health, Dr. Cooper combines expert knowledge from his thirty-plus years of experience in cardiothoracic surgery with humanizing stories of his own experiences with heart disease, both personal and professional, from his own early recollections of heart attacks in his community to the lives he devoted himself to on tour in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr. Cooper has dedicated himself to combating heart disease through education and prevention. Within these pages you will find the answers to questions such as: How does it feel to have an ailing heart? What symptoms should I watch for after I've had a heart attack? What lifestyle changes can I make and how do I implement them? In addition, you will find in-depth guides to the proper nutrition and exercise needed to maintain a healthy heart. "Heart Attack" breaks down the barriers between the numbers and the hearts behind them, and humanizes our society's struggle with heart disease like no other has done before.

#504 The Art of Logic
How can mathematics help us have better arguments? This week we spend the hour with "The Art of Logic in an Illogical World" author, mathematician Eugenia Cheng, as she makes her case that the logic of mathematics can combine with emotional resonance to allow us to have better debates and arguments. Along the way we learn a lot about rigorous logic using arguments you're probably having every day, while also learning a lot about our own underlying beliefs and assumptions.
