"I Dropped Dead..." A Surprising Book Review of Heart Healthy Pizza

I just read this review of my book while getting info from Amazon for a website wanting to sell it.  The first few words stunned me and I thought it was a gag or slam review.  It's legit, and I'm very gratified.  One of my key goals in writing "Heart Healthy Pizza" was to help people be/eat healthier.  How cool that it's been so useful to him!
"I dropped dead on a tennis court (and was lucky enough to be playing against a team with a cardiologist who did world class cpr for 12 minutes until a rescue squad arrived to shock me back to life). It took me about 30 seconds post-op from my bypass to adopt Caldwell Esselstyn's vegan cardiac disease reversal program. Though I ate a "good" diet most of the time, I was addicted to cheese pizzas for my whole (almost foreshortened) life. This book is a treasure. The visuals of the pizza are appetizing and valid relative to the finished product. The taste of the recipes I have undertaken is great. The nutrition is miraculous for a so-called comfort food. Thank you, Mark Sutton, for your tour de force collection of no oil vegan gourmet pizza. Incidentally, I run 10 k's, complete duathlons, and play USTA team tennis at the age of 64 on the Esselstyn diet." -- R.S.

  1. The studies suggest pizza consumption may help decrease the risk of heart attack and of certain types of cancers.
