ADMISSIONS Life as a Brain Surgeon

by | Read by Henry Marsh

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Prominent British brain surgeon Henry Marsh, now retired, narrates intimate details of his professional and personal life. While his delivery may seem a bit too posh, some might even say haughty, his style captures the gravitas of the calculated life-and-death risks he took every day in his career. This memoir follows his earlier work, DO NO HARM. It will require listeners to keep some emotions in check as the stories unwind. Reactions of patients and families to positive and negative news are portrayed in an unflinching way. The writing is erudite and appealing, ultimately offering real insights into the practices of this talented and respected surgeon who operated on perhaps the least understood organ, the human brain.
