Psychiatry and Heart Disease is a unique book that attempts to bridge the gap between psychiatry and primary care. It is the product of collaboration between psychiatrists and cardiologists. This book’s importance stems from its focus on the world’s number one killer, heart disease, and discusses 2 of the leading causes of disability in the world, cardiovascular disease and depression.
