Do No Harm: Stories of Life, Death, and Brain Surgery
Candid. One of the liveliest non-fiction books I’ve read this year is Henry Marsh’s Do No Harm: Stories of Life, Death and Brain Surgery. Marsh is a neurosurgeon in England, and he uses this book to draw readers into the stories of patients, his work as a brain surgeon, and the life and death consequences of his work. I was impressed by the candid way in which he admits to mistakes. His fights with managers and bureaucracy are often humorous. Most of all this is a delightful exploration of our human life in all its wonder. I was delighted from beginning to end.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
