    Do No Harm

    Heard an interview with the author on CBC. Very interesting to the point where i had to read his book. Do No Harm opens ones eyes to a very small glimpse of the fragility of the brain and how we take it for granted. Marsh made it evidently clear that dealing with patients is not only about explaining the mechanics of the brain, but trying to help them and their families put living/ dying in perspective. A task that did not seem to get easier with seniority. Well done! Enlightening read. Alas, as much as Marsh writes this book to shine a small light on his vocation(or maybe some sort of self repentence), I felt this book had undertones of pompousness and arrogance that only the Brits can produce. It seemed that Marsh was trying to comes to terms with this arrogance, blaming it on being young and having unlimited 'hubris' but i dont buy it. Long live the stogey upperclass Engishman eh. BLAH! That being said, next time I get a headache, this book will surely come to mind.

    From the other end of the scope

    An honest objective presentation of what it's like from the physicians perspective. Mr destroyed human frailties and conceit just like everyone else! Also very well written and pleasant to read

    Wonderful memoir

    I really enjoyed getting a first hand view of life as a neurosurgeon. Marsh's honesty, humour and humble self-appraisal made this memoir very readable and educational.
