Heart To Beat: A Cardiac Surgeon’s Inspiring Story of Success and Overcoming Adversity–The Heart Way

We rated this book:


Heart to Beat is the dual-combo book from Dr. Brian Lima, written as both an autobiography and self-help for his readers. Dr. Lima is from a Cuban family who defected from Cuba during Castro’s communist reign. Growing up in New Jersey, Lima learned many life lessons from his parents at home, as well as his friends and coaches at school; enough life stories to fill a book. In each chapter, he highlights a different key moment from his life that has resulted in his current success. Being of Cuban descent, it would be believable to imagine that he wouldn’t amount to much. Thanks to wise words from his father that helped fuel his desire throughout the rest of his life, he has amounted to more than many people. Throughout the retelling of his life stories, he desires to stress to his readers that there will be hard times in life, but how the situations are handled will make all the difference – never give up! Lima could have easily decided that his dreams were too high and to try for something more attainable, but he knew what he wanted, and he stuck to his guns and made it happen. Dr. Lima is a wonderful role model for the youth of today, and the advice he graciously gives his readers will help them succeed in their current and future endeavors.

Brian Lima gives much heartfelt advice and speaks from the heart when recounting his nostalgic memories of his childhood and past. Lima’s stories are both calming and exciting at the same time. He writes them in a personable tone of voice, with modern-day language and comical commentary. Reading his story makes for an easy page-turner, as you will be wondering what will be happening next in the story being told, as well as what his next major life advice will be. For anyone to achieve any type of success in the field of medicine is a major feat, but Dr. Lima has taken his success above and beyond and has made a life-changing difference in a multitude of people’s lives. With this great success comes great responsibility, and Dr. Lima is not shy to let any and everyone know what he has to go through on the job, not just in technical terms, but in social terms as well, dealing with bedside manner with the patients. He adorns his reader with tips that he has learned to help you increase your odds of a favorable future. Perseverance, commitment, and high self-esteem are all necessary traits to develop and continue to grow for anyone in any field of work.
