  • Heart

    By Sandeep Jauhar

    Read by Patrick Lawlor

    A History

    A beautifully written social, cultural, and medical history of the human heart

    [Starred Review] “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
