The author of a newly released book, THE HUMAN AORTA—Your Super Highway of Life, is not a medical doctor, but he experienced three surgeries for an unknown disease in his aorta, which was a major catalyst for writing this book. Author Robert F. Epps extensively researched the subject but found little information in the books he read and virtually nothing on the subject in layman’s terms. He decided to dig deeper and write this book in language that non-medical people could understand. Mr. Epps became somewhat of an expert on the subject. Dr. Helena Kuivaniemi, MD, of the Geisinger Clinic confirms this, “It is a very useful book for physicians to understand how patients see the condition.... Thank you for spreading awareness about this disease!” Dr. Scott LeMaire, a thoracic surgeon, agrees, “Your story is truly remarkable, and your highway analogy portrays the normal aortic function and aortic disease extremely well.”
THE HUMAN AORTA is written for people who want to know more about this silent killer—those who have a hunger for knowledge regarding the purpose, function, and diseases of the human aorta. These people want to know what the aorta is, how it functions, and what its purpose is in the body. If they’re patients, they will learn how their specific disease impacts them and their family. If they’re caregivers, this book provides insight to help prevent burn out. Not only will this book give much needed information, it also provides a large dose of inspiration, and it just might save your life or the life of someone you love. And that’s what we call a good read!
