    G. Wayne Miller has dramatically and meticulously reconstructed an amazing true story: how a group of renegade Minnesota surgeons, led by Dr. Walt Lillehei, made medical history by becoming the first doctors to operate deep inside the human heart.

    Overall

    This is the amazing story of the development of the first open heart surgery in the 1950's. The medical background is easy enough for a non-medical person to understand but remains highly engaging even for a medical professional. I am a medical history enthusiast and this book goes right near the top of the list and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys understanding how scientific and medical breakthroughs occur. Perhaps the only book I enjoyed more was "The Mold in Dr. Florey's Coat" chronicling the development of penicillin.

    King of Hearts is a great book and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
