Admissions: Life as a Brain Surgeon Reviews

  • Canadian Reader
    It's been some time since I read Henry Marsh's wonderful and compelling memoir of his life in neurosurgery, Do No Harm. I had hoped to re-read it prior to starting his new one, Admissions, but I didn't manage it. I'd ordered the book from Britain-- as it won't appear in Canada until the fall of 2017...

    Another book by Henry Marsh that puts you into the life and death brain surgeries that he performs. This one is near the ending of his NHS employment and he posits upon retirement and his future "workshop" rehab project. This is the book that gives us his regrets, his "admissions" to fault. Not just...

    Marsh's 'Do No Harm' is one of the most compelling books I've ever read, and gave me pause at many points. This one did too, but for different reasons. In this book we find Marsh contemplating retirement, and reflecting on what went right, and what went (often catastrophically) wrong with his career...
