Présentation de l'éditeur



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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A thoughtful, forthright memoir about the life of a neurosurgeon 22 avril 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
This book is a memoir of Henry Marsh, a senior consultant neurosurgeon in London, UK. In a series of episodic chapters, he writes very candidly about the challenges, heartbreak and occasional triumph that neurosurgeons (and indeed many medical professionals) face every day. Each chapter is compelling, whether following individual patients and their sometimes life-or-death surgeries, recalling his years of extensive medical training, or searching for some sort of hope within stories of disease. His recounting of his own family's illnesses is very raw and touching. His bitterness against the institutionalization of medicine is counterbalanced by the very 'British' dry wit and irony, which in many cases is very funny.

The book is clearly written in a style that does not talk down to the reader, despite discussing sometimes very complicated or technical medical problems. Fans of neurological disease (such as the works of Oliver Sacks and Frank Vertosick) or medical stories in general will enjoy and appreciate it. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Reading "Do no harm" will do you good. 8 juillet 2014

This book is disarmingly honest in revealing the highs and lows in the career of an exceptional neurosurgeon. God-like status often proves difficult for surgeons to handle, both within their professional careers and in private lives, and Henry Marsh does an outstanding job in examining many of the issues through the use of finely crafted case-histories. His difficulties in working within the evolving UK health system, where new levels of management and administration degrade the ability of front-line medical to achieve the outputs expected of them, is sobering and thought provoking.
I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in, and some knowledge of, the the life sciences.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Every doctor ( and patient) should read this book 24 avril 2014

This is a very enjoyable read. Mr Marsh is frank and forthright , and pulls no punches when he recounts his stories. Not only is he remarkably empathetic, I love the way he calls a spade a spade when discussing the shortcomings of the NHS. He is insightful and innovative I do hope he will continue to share his wisdom !

Having endured with many Top Notched Neurosurgeons, I have the highly esteemed regards for them, furthermore - I often wonder how difficult decisions, the burdens, and so much more is weighed upon their backs; this book absolutely does not beat around the bush - end put! It tells it like it is. As delicate as the brain is, I love it how Marsh makes it clear; simplified, pulling no punches or letting anyone stand in his way of trying to "push him over the ledge" - therefore, to sum it up the Neurosurgeon has a very reason WHY they say NO, YES or MAYBE and if a MAYBE and wanting further evaluations and testing. While to a patient, may drive one nuts indeed - I know, I've been through it all - several times over and probably several times too many; I am not a brain surgical candidate; and now this book clearly goes beyond showing me things that one would call "Hallway Talks" .... I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR ANYONE WHO IS OR HAS A LOVED ONE WHO IS GOING TO UNDERGO NEUROSURGERY OR ABOUT TO; this book tells it all and right there, you will know what to expect; guaranteed will not disappoint anyone! You will also learn why if you were declined or rejected or turned down for brain surgery because the Neurosurgeon or Nuerosurgeons turned you away; you have a lot to be thankful for; and for those who endured through it - knowing that they had made the utmost decision to go ahead and proceed this delicate operation after debating and weighing the Pros and Cons. I cannot stress enough, it is far more than what Epilepsy Foundation to Alzheimer's Foundation to Brain Cancer Organizations could offer you! THIS BY FAR IS THE BEST BOOK TO READ!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An honest account 5 mars 2015

This is a very thoughtful memoir. Having worked in medical education for almost 20 years, I enjoy narrative medicine. In other words, I enjoy reading about physician experiences; aside from finding them interesting, I also feel it makes me a better teacher and administrator. The author Henry Marsh is a gifted story teller, but the best part of this book is the honesty he portrays throughout the entire book. There is no sugar-coating of anything, nor is it some sort of polemic or political piece like so many physician narratives today. Instead, this is an honest account of a man who clearly feels that his work is his mission and calling in life, he doesn't love it but I also don't get the sense that he would be able to ever do anything else. An amazing book.
