About the Author

Lionel Opie qualified as a medical doctor at the University of Cape Town. He then won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University where he trained in heart research and later worked with leaders of thought at Harvard University. After the world's first heart transplant in Cape Town, he was invited back to South Africa to develop heart research at Groote Schuur Hospital, where he still works. As a clinician he specializes in managing problems of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and reducing heart attack risks. His teams' ground-breaking contributions show how exercise can counter heart attacks, following the philosophy that heart-mind interactions are of crucial importance in achieving and maintaining optimal health. He is highly regarded internationally as a scientist, academic and medical writer. He has recently been honoured with the prestigious South African Presidential award, the Order of Mapungubwe.
