Reading "Extraordinary Hearts" was like sitting down with Dr. Elefteriades listening to him recount the individual stories of his ten patients, some famous but all incredibly unique. The complex medical procedures and terminology are explained to the reader in an easily understandable fashion such that a person with a basic knowledge of high school biology can follow. It would have been easy for such a work to focus on the medical personnel and staff who performed the procedures as well as the amazing medical advances of which the reader learns, but this book instead shines the light on the true heroes and heroines, the patients and their families showing how the operation or procedure and complex related decisions impact both the patient and the surgical team. What comes through is a caring physician and medical team devoted to each individual patient and displays the reciprocal confidence and trust of the patient in that team. An excellent read.
