The article focuses on the book "An Autobiographical Account of Life in the Golden Age of Medicine," by Stewart Wolf and studies related to measurement of heart rate variability (HRV) to know stress rate. It states that the book is about pioneers in stress research. A study reveals that factors like serum, cholesterol and age could not predict myocardial infarction as mortality could be predicted through beat-to beat electrocardiographic change.
