Book Reviews

"An account treasured by all of those cardiac surgeons who owe a debt of gratitude to this pioneering surgeon."

"The inclusion of well-executed drawings (mainly watercolour washes supervised by the author and based on his preliminary sketches), with photograph, echocardiographic images and tables leave the reader in no doubt of the surgical steps that are intended."
