Do No Harm: Stories of Life, Death, and Brain Surgery

Henry Marsh

This brand new book has already been shortlisted for several nonfiction prizes, for its poetic, soul-baring look at the reality of life as a brain surgeon. Marsh reminds us that brain surgeons are above all, imperfect but caring humans. For more about the book, you can listen to Henry Marsh’s recent interview with Terry Gross from NPR’s Fresh Air.
