A brilliant in-sight into the very edge of human survival,
This review is from: Extremes: Life, Death and the Limits of the Human Body (Hardcover)
From the very off-set I gripped, reading tales of incredible human survival. From zero-gravity to open heart-surgery, Dr Kevin Fong doesn't give the reader much chance to come up for air; sometimes literally!
Fong explores the limits of human physiology and how these limits have been extended through pioneering-surgeons and the use of technology. Informative, without the boredom of a textbook; fascinating, full of unbelievable stories and personal experiences and the enjoyment of Fong's passion, which is very evident through-out.
Easily one of the most enjoyable books I have read to date. Highly-recommend!
