For the people that are interested in Cardiology this book is for you. I'm just seventeen years old, but this book is the most inspiring book I have ever read. I just can't wait until I become a Cardiothoracic Surgeon. This is a wonderful description of life as a heart surgeon and the descriptions and workings of Cardiology.
Really interesting book and insightful especially since I am looking into cardiac surgery as a career even though I'm still young. This book gives you all the details of what its like to have this job and im so glad i got this book.
More information on Cardiac surgery. Not written for people with in depth knowledge of cardiac surgery
