Do No Harm

Stories of Life, Death and Brain Surgery

(1)
'A SUPERB ACHIEVEMENT' IAN MCEWAN

What is it like to be a brain surgeon?

How does it feel to hold someone's life in your hands, to cut through the stuff that creates thought, feeling and reason?

How do you live with the consequences when it all goes wrong?

DO NO HARM offers an unforgettable insight into the highs and lows of a life dedicated to operating on the human brain, in all its exquisite complexity. With astonishing candour and compassion, Henry Marsh reveals the exhilarating drama of surgery, the chaos and confusion of a busy modern hospital, and above all the need for hope when faced with life's most agonising decisions.

Rezension
Neurosurgery has met its Boswell in Henry Marsh. Painfully honest about the mistakes that can 'wreck' a brain, exquisitely attuned to the tense and transient bond between doctor and patient, and hilariously impatient of hospital management, Marsh draws us deep into medicine's most difficult art and lifts our spirits. It's a superb achievement Ian McEwan

Do No Harm, by Henry Marsh is a wonderful piece of work, very well written and quite intricate. A autobiographie in its own way, not traditional at all. Marsh tells his life's work though cases on which he has worked. His attention to detail makes the book what it... Do No Harm, by Henry Marsh is a wonderful piece of work, very well written and quite intricate. A autobiographie in its own way, not traditional at all. Marsh tells his life's work though cases on which he has worked. His attention to detail makes the book what it is, it allows you to almost be a part of the story. The medical aspect of it is well explained, but still detailed enough with all its medical jargon. A must read for every medical student and doctor. A few tears did flow here and there. Beautiful :)
