When asked, I promptly accepted the invitation to review Richard Bing's second edition of his Cardiology: The Evolution of the Science and the Art. I was eager to examine the contents of the book for two reasons.
First, I always listen to Richard Bing and read what he writes because he is an excellent scientist, master composer of music, superb writer, and wise man. I suppose he is a genius.1 Also, it has always fascinated me that he worked with Charles Lindbergh and Alexis Carrel.
