    review Partners of the Heart Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Partners of the HeartHEAVY on the medical terms this book actually held my interest a lot than I thought it would Honestly this would have been a 35 for me but it was surprisingly not as dry as I thought so I rounded up Disclaimer I did start skimming through the medical partsVivien Thomas had graduate high school and was getting ready to enter college and hoped to continue to med school But fate and the Great Depression intervened He got on with Alfred Blalock in a school in Nashville and moved with him to Johns Hopkins Blalock obviously recognized the work Thomas was doing and made sure that they were a package deal even passing up jobs when Thomas wouldn't be able to come with himWhile Thomas glosses over racism you know he had to have experienced than he lets on His account of this history of being part of the team that helped develop cardiac surgery and save millions of blue babies is matter of fact and I think

    review Partners of the Heart Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Partners of the HeartVivien Thomas basically represents how hands on learning and practice lead to new procedures and tools in surgery Learn by doing Dr Bialock instructs Vivien Thomas at first but they eventually become interdependent partners We owe a lot of the advances in cardiac surgery to these surgeons' experiments on dogs
