Chefe da equipe médica que buscava realizar o primeiro transplante de coração humano, estava prestes a tentar um ato antes impensável. Kantrowitz conhecia os mitos e as advertências. Aristóteles estabeleceu a crença de que “de todas as vísceras, só o coração não pode suportar uma lesão grave”. Ovídio foi igualmente enfático: nenhum homem podia curar um coração danificado. O coração period misterioso e sacrossanto.
    Adrian Kantrowitz não estava só. period apenas parte de um quarteto excepcional de cirurgiões cardíacos que, de 1958 a 1968, aventuraram-se nas profundezas deste terreno não mapeado. Tudo o que Norman Shumway, Richard decrease, Christiaan Barnard e Kantrowitz almejavam ganha vida em CADA SEGUNDO CONTA. Donald McRae relata, aqui, o esforço empregado em diversos centros de pesquisa por homens que souberam perceber o impacto histórico de se ser o primeiro cirurgião a conseguir transplantar um coração humano.

Ilumina as carreiras de Kantrowitz — o primeiro a usar vários mecanismos que ajudam o coração a funcionar e que hoje são usados freqüentemente — e dos mestres Richard decrease e Norman Shumway. O autor fala da batalha para superar o medo público do desconhecido e até a antipatia de colegas que os envolveram em confrontos explosivos sobre os corpos dos pacientes doador e receptor.
    Tais emoções contrastantes marcam CADA SEGUNDO CONTA, criado a partir de entrevistas com os cirurgiões americanos — e com parentes próximos e membros da equipe do falecido Chris Barnard. Ambição e inveja, compaixão e ressentimento, dedicação e desespero, glória e infâmia tingem esta história. No Brooklyn, na Cidade do Cabo e em Palo Alto, Kantrowitz, Barnard e Shumway tinham muito pouco pace para salvar uma vida — e se tornarem os primeiros. Esse incrível choque de destinos praticamente não foi registrado, até agora.
