This unique book will help psychiatrists to understand better the risks of cardiovascular illness and cardiologists to appreciate possible pathophysiological links with psychiatric conditions.  It describes the common psychiatric conditions, their key features and how they may influence cardiovascular disease, outcomes, and quality of life. It also considers the cardiovascular complications that may arise as a result of mental illness. 
In an exciting, collaborative approach, psychiatrists and cardiologists combine their expertise throughout the book to provide guidance on the best way to manage such patients, considering the patient as a whole, not the individual conditions.

Psychiatry and Heart Disease: The Mind, Brain,and Heart is an outstanding up-to-date reference connecting the heart and brain, from basic science mechanisms and insights to clinical associations that affect literally millions of patients in the United States and around the world. The book is wonderfully crafted, beginning with the association between risk factorsn and psychological distress, the relationship
between depression and cardiovascular disease, the connection between psychiatric problems and congestive heart failure and post operative patients, and followed by important psychiatric issues that take place in patients undergoing cardiac transplantation after cardiac arrest, those harboring internal defibrillators, cardioverters and patients with severe diseases such as pulmonary hypertension.
The second half of the book is equally insightful, focusing on items such as teasing out the differences between true cardiovascular symptoms and those caused by psychosocial somatic disorders, the management of the patient with bipolar disorder, the relationship of sleep with cardiovascular disease, and post traumatic stress syndrome. In addition, a very common problem, cardiovascular manifestation, of patients with panic and anxiety syndromes is covered in exquisite detail. Lastly, the authors have offered interesting discussions on genetic susceptibility, psychosocial symptoms from medications and psychiatric drugs, and the relationship with exercise, fitness and smoking. For too long, we have failed to come together as disciplines to properly explore mind-heart interactions and their underpinnings. This book goes a long way to helping us delineate those interfaces in the modern era and anticipate where we must go with our science, education and treatment as we move forward
