Enjoyed the content and readers but could not access the maps that were supposed to be attached (PDF). Disappointing!
A beautiful biography of Roberto Canessa with many life lessons. His experiences while surviving a plane wreck teach him life lessons that later help him in his medical career, saving the lives of babies with heart conditions.
I have read other stories related to this incident and found this particular one to be extremely slow repetitive and boring. while I have deep respect or for the author for his experience and skill as a physician he is not a writer. this story goes into more detail about his surgical success then into the lives of those who survive with him. the details on the mountain are vague are out of sequence with others description of events.
