Listened to this one on audio and really enjoyed it. Part memoir and part medical history, it was a fascinating look into the relatively recent understanding of how the human heart works and what treatments we are able to do. For example, CPR wasn‘t around until the late 1950s even though physicians began attempting open heart surgery in the late 1800s. Lots of interesting facts about cardiology - would definitely recommend. #audiobook #cardiology

#RedRoseSeptember Day 23: What I find to be especially powerful in this picturebook is the capacity of one to decide what to do with one‘s heart, especially when it is broken, hurt, tight-fisted-closed - reminding me of #HeAintHeavyHesMyBrother. This precious work of art shows how one is able to reinvent, redefine, transform one‘s self, if one so wills it. My review of this deceptively simple but powerful book: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kBR

This was a great read for #scienceseptember from personal history with heart disease and training as a heart specialist to the history of how our understanding of the heart has developed, and with it treatments for various ailments - meditation often does as much as medication, and the connection between anxiety/stress and the heart. I recently had AED training when I was CPR certified but had no idea that technology was so new. ⤵️

ReadingEnvy On a level of greater detail, and don't read on if you're squeamish - Dr. Jauhar describes the first self-catheterization in agonizing detail and I threw the book down mid-sentence (and I'm the least squeamish person I know!) Experiments on animals that led to major heart discoveries are explained in great detail that might be difficult to read for a lot of animal lovers. ⤵️ 3mo
ReadingEnvy And since the author was a doctor working in the makeshift morgues at ground zero for 9/11, you should be prepared for some pretty gruesome detail from that day, not heart related, or at least so it seems at first. 3mo
DrexEdit Interesting! That's going to displace something higher up on my #TBR list for sure. And a great cover! 😍 😊 3mo

Autumn arrived... So that means, it's getting darker.
I'm not too good with this time of the year, so let's remember some lovely summertime at the pool!

This is a great book about a great rock bank. We often think we know things about a band, but our perceptions are often wrong because of the pressure placed on entertainers to present themselves in a certain way.

The #everykindapeople version I know is by S Club 7, who signed my video when I had my heart transplant, hence my choice of book. #ayupaugust @squirrelbrain @Cinfhen
