A gifted poet as well as a renowned cardiologist and medical professor, John Stone eloquently bridges the seeming expanse between science and the arts. In this wonderful collection of true stories, Stone fluently translates the language of cardiology into one we can all understand as he examines the relationship between the physical heart--the driving pump that nourishes the body--and the metaphorical heart. Through fascinating case histories, Stone reveals the human side of medicine, uncovering, the world of emotions felt by doctors and by those who seek their help.
