Books on Heart Surgery

The history behind the story…

These are some of the books I found invaluable in researching my novel, The Stars That Govern Us and which are mentioned in the book’s Historical Note. For readers who would like to learn more about the science and history behind the novel, I highly recommend these reads.

The links on this page go to the book’s respective page on where you can purchase the book. (Leonard Engel’s book is unfortunately out of print.)
