About this title


The fascinating autobiography of Marius Barnard, who performed the world’s first human heart transplant with his brother Chris. He was also an MP for the Progressive Federal Party, he worked to improve cardiac surgery standards behind the Iron Curtain and globally, and he played a leading role in the creation of critical illness insurance – his invention, and one that has played a significant part in creating protection insurance policies with local and international companies to the direct benefit of the sick and ailing.

From his humble beginnings in the Karoo town of Beaufort West to his position as one of the world’s leading cardiac surgeons, this book is a fascinating account of his life and work, and his relationships with his brother, his colleagues and his adversaries. With candor, authenticity and charm it brings to life the spellbinding successes and formidable challenges of this international medical icon and gives new and startling insights into the first human heart transplant.

About the Author:

Dr. MARIUS BARNARD is probably best remembered as a member of the pioneering medical team that performed the world’s first human heart transplant at Groote Schuur Hospital in 1967, with his brother Chris.
