Can You Die of a Broken Heart?
Dr Nikki Stamp (MURDOCH BOOKS)
From the time she was a child, heart and lung specialist Dr Nikki Stamp has had a firm interest in the workings of the heart: how this amazing organ impacts our lives and how it is in turn influenced by our emotions and life experiences. The question of whether we can die of a broken heart has long challenged philosophers and physicians. Rich with compelling anecdotes drawn from Stamp’s experiences with patients and her insights into maintaining heart health, it makes for fascinating reading.
