THE SOURCE OF ALL THINGS: A Heart Surgeon's Quest to Understand Our Most Mysterious Organ
The heart is our most important organ. Yet despite that it has not changed since the appearance of Homo sapiens 300,000 years ago, it is also our most mysterious. In most human cultures, it is seen as the source of love, sympathy, joy, courage, strength and wisdom. Friedl looked again at this "primitive pump" to reconcile it with his experiences from thousands of heart operations.
