    Hello everyone. I am a retired thoracic surgeon and just published a book: "Cracking Chests: How Thoracic Surgery got from Rocks to Sticks." It is aimed at the general reader (non-surgeons) and relates the story of the origin and development of thoracic surgery, mainly for the lungs and esophagus. There are also my personal experiences as an academic thoracic surgeon. This is an opportunity to learn what some of us on the periphery of true science are up to and how we got the operations that fill today's panoply of options.
