My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Valuable insight from a talented and promising neurosurgeon and neuroscientist. A doctor who finds himself in the shoe of a dying patient. I knew this wasn’t going to be a happy joyful book and I still read it and I do not regret that decision. A beautiful memoir. Throughout the book there are little details or thoughts every here and there that gives you a lot to think about and to learn from. Among my main motivations to read are
1. the opportunity to learn and
2. to get different perspectives.
This book definitely fulfills that. There is learning especially from a medical perspective about anatomy, neurosurgery and cancer among others. If you are like me, do read you will enjoy. I do suggest though to keep/read/watch something lighter and more jovial on the side; this book might take a toll on your emotions.
