Prominent neurosurgeon Henry Marsh recounts stories of patients whose cases, with both positive and negative outcomes, have had a lasting impact on him professionally and personally. Jim Barclay's authoritative British-accented narration is befitting for the purveyor of delicate and exacting medical procedures. Barclay's tone does tend toward a sort of exasperation or haughtiness. Whether this is due to his narration style or is an exaggerated portrayal of the author's frustrations on the page is not evident. Nonetheless, the book is an informative look at the joys and trials of a practicing brain surgeon. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2015]
