The Heart Healers
One Australian dies from heart disease every twelve minutes. But hundreds of thousands have lived thanks to the greatest medical breakthrough of our lives. World-renowned cardiologist Dr James Forrester tells the dramatic story of the misfits, mavericks and rebels who defied the accumulated scientific wisdom of the day to begin conquering heart disease. In The Heart Healers, he describes the risks these rebels took with their own lives and the lives of others to heal the most elemental of human organs. This is the pulsating chronicle of a disease and its cure -- a disease that is still with us, but one that is slowly being worn away by The Heart Healers.
