"Given the tensions and demands of medicine, highly successful physicians and surgeons rarely achieve equal success as prose writers. It is truly extraordinary that a major, international pioneer in the controversial field of transplant surgery should have written a spellbinding, and heart-wrenching, autobiography. Every patient who receives someone else's organ - and Starzl remembers each one - is a puzzle. The surgeons and physicians who pioneered transplantation were also changed: they too became puzzle people.; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
