The book delves into complex matters of science, politics, and faith, revealing the murky ethics of experimentation and remarkable innovations that save patients from certain death. Join Dr. White on his decades-long quest to achieve the impossible and uncover the journey from science fiction to science fact.

If you love medical history (& I know you do because you follow me), then you'll love @bschillace. Her last book MR HUMBLE & DR BUTCHER is one of my favorites. It's the true story of a surgeon's quest to perform a "head transplant." Check it (& her) out:      источник
I am devouring this brilliant, utterly nuts book by @bschillace about the history of brain transplants, via two headed dogs, nuclear war, the embodiment of the soul, Catholicism, a few more severed heads. It’s an incredible story, and Schillace is and *incredible* writer.      источник
