BOOK REVIEW: HENRY MARSH – ADMISSIONS – A LIFE IN BRAIN SURGERY

 

We all know that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. This means that most things are complex and made of many shades of grey. One such example is brain surgery, something we often use as an example of a job that is at the pinnacle of things considered deeply challenging. Henry Marsh is a surgeon who has spent four decades working in this field. In his second memoir he follows-up his previous book, Do No Harm, by delivering some additional stories about his patients, as well as treating us to a more personal look at his life outside of the operating theatre. It is a mostly intriguing volume that is also a little disjointed in terms of its central focus at times.
