Pump: A Natural History of the Heart

by Bill Schutt Author

In Pump, Vertebrate zoologist Bill Schutt gets to the heart of one fascinating organ. From one of his favorites — bats — to humans and beyond, Schutt begins by exploring the origins of circulatory systems in non-vertebrates and paints us an evolutionary, biological, and sociocultural history of the heart. A research associate at the American Museum of Natural History, Schutt’s interests are wide and varied, but here goes full circle around his interests to the organ that the ancient Hellenics and Egyptians believed held the soul.
