Here is what your fellow afibbers had to say about Thrombosis and Stroke Prevention First Edition

LAF 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."
Norman F. Fisher MD, CA, USA

"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."
Jackie Burgess RDH, OH, USA

"Hans Larsen's new book Thrombosis and Stroke Prevention is an outstanding reference work and mandatory reading for any layperson or doctor interested in substantially reducing the risks of coronaries and strokes. It is also an outstanding reference for anyone contemplating surgery, or anyone with serious medical problems."
Frank McCabe, Dublin, Ireland

"Hans Larsen's new book Thrombosis and Stroke Prevention is extremely valuable for those of us with atrial fibrillation and for all adults. Hans clearly explains the body's pathways to form blood clots and to dissolve them, the medications in common use to affect these processes, and the natural alternatives that can be used to help prevent stroke. His analysis will also help to prevent heart attack and blood clots in the lungs. Read this book; it may save your life!"
Sadja Greenwood MD MPH, CA, USA

"Hans Larsen's knowledge on thrombosis and stroke prevention far exceeds that of most conventional medical specialists in this area. This simple to read, cutting edge manual on natural alternatives to stroke prevention is a must read for anyone contemplating anti-coagulation therapy or simply wanting to prevent a stroke."
Michael Lam MD MPH, CA, USA

"Hans Larsen's new book Thrombosis and Stroke Prevention carefully walks the concerned reader through this minefield of strokes, ischemic and hemorrhagic, and how best to avoid them. His well-researched tables comparing the risks and benefits of the various approaches to anticoagulation will not be found in the more traditional books on the topic. They are easily understood by the layman and provide the cold, hard numbers needed for making the difficult decisions involved in selecting the optimum stroke prevention protocol."
Patrick Chambers MD, CA, USA

"Mr. Larsen guides the AF patient, and his physician, through the basics of blood clotting and how this is affected by the various anti-platelet and anti-coagulant drugs. He makes a particularly valuable contribution in his discussion of "natural", non-pharmaceutical approaches to stroke prevention, which actually has relevance to the general, and not just the AF, population. Those interested in AF and stroke would be hard put to find a more valuable reference on the subject than Mr. Larsen's outstanding little book."
