When Bill Schutt writes a book, it tends to get messy, at least his non-fiction books. His first was called “Dark Banquet” which dealt with vampire bats and other creatures who feed on blood. To follow that up he wrote “Cannibalism – A Perfectly Natural History,” which dealt with…well I think you know what that dealt with. Now he is back with a volume that every living creature can identify with. It’s called “Pump – A Natural History of the Heart.” Bill Schutt is a zoologist, Emeritus Professor of Biology at LIU Post, and a research associate at the American Museum of Natural History. I asked Dr. Schutt why he took on the heart.

We’ve spent a lot of time talking about the heart today. Let’s move up about a foot and a half and spend a little time with the brain. That’s the topic of today’s Academic Minute.
