By Donald C. Harrison, M.D.

The strong guidance of parents and teachers as he grew up in Alabama's Appalachia motivated Donald Harrison to reach for outstanding career achievements. He became one of the most respected and well-known cardiologists in the world, most notably in building a world-class cardiology program at Stanford University. He then moved to Cincinnati to direct the University's Medical Center with more than 1,000 faculty members and over $240 million in funded research and an extensive building program.
In this memoir, Dr. Harrison describes the changes in medicine and cardiology that he has experienced personally and that he has influenced over a career spanning 50 years. His drive for excellence came from his mother's early, strong hand, although she later rejected his choice of careers. Much of his life's work has been to heal broken hearts, even his own in his relation to his mother.
