"This book is incredibly complete and easy-to-understand for anybody. I certainly recommend it for patients who want to know more about atrial fibrillation than what they will learn from doctors...."

Pierre Jaïs, M.D. Professor of Cardiology, Haut-Lévêque Hospital, Bordeaux, France

"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."

Dr. Wilber Su Cavanaugh Heart Center, Phoenix, AZ

"Your book [Beat Your A-Fib] is the quintessential most important guide not only for the individual experiencing atrial fibrillation and his family, but also for primary physicians, and cardiologists."

Jane-Alexandra Krehbiel, nurse, blogger and author "Rational Preparedness: A Primer to Preparedness"


"Steve Ryan's summaries of the Boston A-Fib Symposium are terrific. Steve has the ability to synthesize and communicate accurately in clear and simple terms the essence of complex subjects. This is an exceptional skill and a great service to patients with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Jeremy Ruskin of Mass. General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

"I love your [A-fib.com] website, Patti and Steve! An excellent resource for anybody seeking credible science on atrial fibrillation plus compelling real-life stories from others living with A-Fib. Congratulations…"

Carolyn Thomas, blogger and heart attack survivor; MyHeartSisters.org

"Steve, your website was so helpful. Thank you! After two ablations I am now A-fib free. You are a great help to a lot of people, keep up the good work."

Terry Traver, former A-Fib patient

"If you want to do some research on AF go to A-Fib.com by Steve Ryan, this site was a big help to me, and helped me be free of AF."

Roy Salmon Patient, A-Fib Free; pacemakerclub.com, Sept. 2013

We are happy and honored to include a poem written for A-Fib patients by Emmett Finch, the Malibu Poet. We hope it will inspire you as it did us:

(A poem by Emmett Finch)

For those faced with A-Fib,

Be it small or great –

The chances of remission must not be left to fate.

There are many means of treatment,

Available these days –

Providing ways to end it or mitigate what stays.

Have faith and keep the attitude

That the method will be found;

Do your part, search and start, for what there is around.

It’s wise to consider life-style,

The foods and the intake too.

What it is you’re doing and the impact that comes through.

Do your part and make a start,

To live a healthy life.

And Providence will help you and things will come out right.

Some will use a newer way

Or approach for a correction.

And others choose an older way, or an ancient type direction.

Whatever you may choose to do,

Use an open mind.

For everyone is not the same, and no two of just one kind.

But through it all, keep the faith,

And do not fail to see –

The many ways and means to go as are the possibilities.

For God still rules and there are tools

To correct what needs to be.

Be sure to use them as provided, to make you A-FIB free.
