THE EXQUISITE MACHINE The New Science of the Heart

by | Read by Polly Lee

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

You probably know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. and around the world. But did you know that people really can die of a broken heart? Polly Lee's performance of this audiobook is careful and deliberate but spirited and engaging. That's the perfect combination for understanding the science--quite complicated at times--of the workings of the human heart. Sian Harding explains how the heart works, what can go wrong with it, how the heart adapts despite a limited ability to regenerate, and how genetics and transplant medicine have advanced in the last few years. Lee's voice is polished, and her British accent is appealing. She understands when and how to vary her tone to add gravitas or wonder.
