The Surgeon Who Dared
de David Cooper
Sobre o livro
From humble beginnings as a 'barefoot boy' in a small town in the heart of South Africa, Barnard learned to mix with presidents and prime ministers, with royality and popes, and quickly embraced the high-life of the jet-set who surrounded him. Having established the first major heart surgery program in Africa, he eventually became distracted by other interests until he was a mere shadow in his own deparment. This is the story of Chris Barnard who dared to carry out the world's first human heart transplant in 1967.
