Stroke Book Hans Larsen has delighted us again with this elegant and provocative book on the mechanisms of thrombosis and stroke. He is able to explain the intricate mechanisms involved in the underlying causes of thrombosis leading to strokes, then he provides us the clinical tests for each of these entities, and then offers a rational preventive means to alter this process. This book is a rich document replete with abundant references and will have a profound and enduring impact on patients attempting to understand and modify their risks for thrombosis and stroke, especially those with lone atrial fibrillation. Highly recommended, and a necessary supplemental companion for Hans Larsen's Lone Atrial Fibrillation: Towards A Cure.

Never before has so much stroke-prevention information been consolidated into one complete, concise, well-referenced, well-researched and very important publication. This book is not just for afibbers, but for all health-conscious individuals looking to avoid blood clots and stroke by understanding who is at risk, how clots form and how to prevent them. The author takes a complex topic and breaks it down into understandable and useful anti-clotting strategies that include a thorough examination of natural alternatives as well as prescription drugs. This is a "must-have" reference everyone needs to own and read.
