Extremely engaging to have a brain surgeon let you into his own brain, and shares the reality of making decisions about other peoples brains. Ultimately, Marsh reveals that he is a normal human being, just like the rest of us, with mistakes, doubts, and successes. We don't often allow people in his position to have these human qualities and it is refreshing.

A very interesting,, thoughtful account of his career as a neurosurgeon. Unflinchingly honest about his own perceived shortcoming, this book is like a breath of fresh air. Dr. Henry Marsh is articulate and informative.
All in all a great read.

I love his first book, and I really liked this one, too. Honest and meaningful as an older medical professional looks back on his life and prepares for a new chapter after his career as a surgeon in England ends.
