Item description

"'Thrilling. The "dizzying" story of heart surgery is every bit as important as that of the nuclear, computer or rocket ages. And yet the heart still feels sacred- just before the operation to fit one of the first artificial hearts, the patient's wife asked the surgeon if he would still be able to love her.The Matter of the Heart gives us a view over the surgeon's shoulder, showing us the heart's inner workings and failings."
