Two weeks prior to entering the hospital for major heart surgery, the author read his own obituary published in his high school magazine. Undeterred, he went ahead with the operation and survived to tell the tale. In "I Am A Mutant", the author describes how he discovered that he had inherited a potentially fatal heart disease, the history of his family, the science of genetics, and the implications of living with a genetic disease.
