A-Fib.com Publisher, Steve S. Ryan, Wins Gold in Reader's Favorite Book Awards for 'Beat Your A-Fib'
The Readers' Favorite 2014 International Book Awards has recognized the patient guidebook, 'Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure' by Steve S. Ryan, PhD, with Gold in the Health-Medical category.
Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure is written for patients with Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib), the most common cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) seen by physicians. Intended for patients who want to understand their illness but don’t want to wade through medical books and research journals, Beat Your A-Fib helps patients research their best treatment options, steps through how to find the right doctor for their type of A-Fib and treatment goals, gives patients hope and empowers them to develop a plan for finding their A-Fib cure or best outcome.
Well Received by Patients and Doctors Alike
Beat Your A-Fib has a wide base of support. Since its debut in 2012, Beat Your A-Fib has been continually on Amazon's 'Top 100 Best Sellers' lists in two categories: Disorders & Diseases Reference, and Heart Disease, and has earned over fifty 5-star customer reviews.

From Dr. Wilber Su of the Cavanaugh Heart Center in Phoenix, AZ: "Dear Steve, I saw a patient this morning with your book [in hand] and highlights throughout. She loves it and finds it very useful to help her in dealing with atrial fibrillation."
From Roy Salmon from Adelaide, Australia, now A-Fib Free, writing about Beat Your A-Fib: ”If I had it 10 years ago, it would have saved me 8 years of hell.”
Reflecting on the award, Dr. Ryan said, "While the praise and recognition is flattering, it's more satisfying when the acclaim helps us with our ultimate mission—to get the message out to A-Fib patients that they don't have to live a life on meds. That A-Fib can be Cured! As I say in the book, I found my cure. You can too!"
