Darwin’s Heart" challenges conventional medical perspectives and encourages readers to consider the broader implications of heart health beyond its physiological function.

The medical history and records book “Darwin’s Heart” by Morris Weiss, Jr MD, FACP, FACC, will be exhibited by the self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the 2024 London Book Fair. The book event will occur on March 12-14, 2024, at the Olympia London, Hammersmith Rd, London W14 8UX, United Kingdom.

“Darwin’s Heart” revolves around a middle-aged man grappling with heart failure who consents to an experimental artificial heart in a desperate bid for survival. The postoperative journey takes an unexpected turn as the patient experiences a tumultuous recovery with no signs of improvement.

Faced with the grim reality, he chooses to be discharged to fulfill his final wish of passing away at home. However, the story takes a bizarre twist at the funeral when the man’s wife presents doctors with a shocking lawsuit – “You buried my husband without his heart.”

The ensuing investigation reveals that the man’s heart had been removed during the experimental procedure and mistakenly omitted from the burial process. In a dramatic turn of events, the doctors retrieve the heart and place it back in the man’s chest, causing the lawsuit to disappear as mysteriously as it emerged.

This extraordinary case catalyzes Dr. Morris Weiss’s introspection on the role of the heart in medicine. Dr. Weiss, a distinguished physician cardiologist, reflects on how the medical community often views the heart merely as a pump, neglecting its profound symbolism and cultural significance.

“Darwin’s Heart” goes beyond modern medicine’s boundaries to explore the human heart’s historical and cultural perceptions across ancient civilizations, religions, and cultures. Dr. Weiss takes readers on a captivating journey through time, revealing how the heart has been revered and understood symbolically long before the advent of contemporary medical practices.
