In the vein of Gut and The Brain That Changes Itself, a gripping exploration into the inner workings of the heart and how emotions and lifestyle affect every beat.

When the actress Debbie Reynolds died a day after her beloved daughter, Carrie Fisher, we interpreted it as literal 'heartbreak'. But what's the evidence? How do times of emotional upheaval affect the heart? Can love, or exercise, really heal our heart problems? And why do we know so much about heart attacks in men when they are more fatal in women?

Can You Die of a Broken Heart? is a fascinating insight into the workings of our most vital organ and how our emotions and lifestyle affect its every beat. Heart and lung surgeon Dr Nikki Stamp takes us into the operating theatre, explaining what she sees in patients with heart complications and what it's like to perform a life-saving transplant.

Stamp fell in the love with the heart as a child and continues to be fascinated by its workings and the whole-of-life experiences that affect it. Rich with anecdotes and insights for maintaining heart health, Can You Die of a Broken Heart? is a blockbuster debut from a unique young voice.
