The Spirit of the Heart is a collection of stories from Ismael Nuno's life.  He details highlights of his medical career, and explains how he struggled to balance his family life with his career.  The stories are uplifting and hopeful, and peppered with sorrowful moments.  He tells about how he achieves his life's goal of becoming a successful heart surgeon, and he explains the highs and lows of journey to that point.  

Opinion: 

Ismael Nuno does a great job of balancing the content of his anecdotes.  They were readible and engaging.  I would recommend this book to readers who favor memoirs, enjoy medical stories and triumphs, and those who are interested in how people with demanding and complicated careers find symmetry between their professional and personal lives.  Dr. Nuno's tales are professional, but engaging.  They are not bogged down with medical jargon.
