Summary
Through the stories of eleven landmark heart surgeries between 1945 and 2005, Morris shows the achievements made by cardiac surgeons -- and the committed bravery, occasional arrogance, jealous rivalry, and incredible ingenuity they displayed to get the job done. Peer over the surgeon's shoulders and into the miracle of the human body, and discover the history of risk-taking that has ultimately saved millions of lives
