Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
Sandeep Juahar’s book goes deep into the history of heart disease. With details about the first surgery, and how we came to understand the heart as we do now. Since we all have a heart, I think this history and understanding is important for everyone.
Sandeep Jauhar has written three books, all published by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. His first book, “Intern: A Doctor’s Initiation,” was a national bestseller and was optioned by NBC for a dramatic television series.
His second book, “Doctored: The Disillusionment of an American Physician,” was a New York Times bestseller and was named a New York Post Best Book of 2014.
“Heart: A History,” his latest book, an Amazon Best Book of the Month, tells the colorful and little-known story of the doctors who risked their careers and the patients who risked their lives to know and heal our most vital organ. It has been praised as “poignant and chattily erudite” by The Wall Street Journal, “fascinating” by The Globe and Mail, and “elegiac” by The American Scholar.
