I would like to dedicate this book to Alex and Sylvia Johnston who were our first cardiac rehabilitation participants at Gartnavel General Hospital, Glasgow. Also to all the other cardiac rehabilitation participants and partners at Jordanhill Heartbeats who have given me as much as I hope I have given them.
