This is the story behind the invention of the medical version of the paper clip - the in-motion cardiac stress test, which has saved millions of lives in the last 50 years. It plays out at the legendary Johns Hopkins University, at a pivotal moment in the scientific history of the heart. But this memoir begins in the war, in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia, where Ivan Likar, a boy with little formal education, had to find his way out.

Toronto cardiologist Dr. Ivan Likar started his career with a scientific thunderbolt. He invented the ECG stress test, used by millions of people around the world to test their hearts. Yet when he was a schoolboy, no one thought he would make it to medical school— except, perhaps, for him.
