This is a beautifully written book for the layman, describing the road to surgery of the heart, what has been accomplished, and what is yet to be. This is a well-balanced presentation which is technically accurate yet simple enough to be understood by any adult and, in fact, by many of the older candidates for cardiac surgery.
