Admissions: Life as a Brain Surgeon

Admissions: Life As a Brain Surgeon by Dr. Henry Marsh is a thoughtful, beautifully written collection of essays from this well-known neurosurgeon. Following the success of his first book Do No Harm, Dr. Marsh began working full time in the Ukraine and Nepal. Much of this book is about his experiences in these countries, interspersed with stories about his family, regrets, retirement and the difficulties of a profession where failure can mean someone's death. He is an excellent writer.
