The World's First Human Heart Transplant Publisher's summary

A fascinating look back at how one of the 20th century's medical milestones came to be in one of the most unlikely places on Earth - Apartheid South Africa. 

The rest of the world had turned its back on South Africa after a controversial massacre in 1960, but seven years later, a pioneering heart surgeon was able to shine a much more positive light on the country when he performed the world's first major organ transplant. A tale about a truly inspirational man who, motivated through losing a brother to heart failure, was able to make this groundbreaking technology a reality that would go on to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.
