Product details

Product description


`Cardiologist Jauhar moves beautifully between "dual tracks" of "learning about the heart...but also what was in my heart,"... Covering enough physiology to make scientific details easily understood, Jauhar emphasizes how brave, desperate, and sometimes foolhardy experiments led to important developments, such as the heart-lung machine... Jauhar is thoughtful, self-reflective, and profoundly respectful of doctors and patients alike; readers will respond by opening their own hearts a little bit, to both grief and wonder.' * Publisher's Weekly, starred review * `An extraordinary, brave and even shocking document...[from] a compelling writer.' -- Florence Williams, New York Times, on Doctored `The narrative is gripping, and the writing is marvellous.' -- Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of The Emperor of All Maladies, on Doctored
