Summary ✓ Fragile Lives 102 Organ with your bare hand to sueeze the life back into it An off day can have dire conseuences – this job has a steep learning curve and the cost is measured in human life Cardiac surgery is not for the faint of heartProfessor Stephen Westaby took chances and pushed the boundaries of heart surgery He saved hundreds of lives over the course of a thirty five year career and now in his astounding memoir Westaby details some of his most.
