An Honest Report from a Surgeon in the Operating Room

Status: Bookseller Picks

Dr. Gabriel Watson's absolutely fascinating book about life in the world of an ENT surgeon is written succinctly (only 205 pages) and honestly. Her chapters are short and focus on one subject only such as death, children, emergencies, and appearances to name a few. She shares her deepest secrets, fears, and insecurities from inside the operating room.

 

The initial description of a scalpel gliding down a neck produce fear and apprehension; the inner voice pleads to put the book down, but don't. Dr. Weston often steps to the edge but never over the brink. Her goal is not to shock but elaborate on the philosophical struggles doctors face everyday caring for their patients.

 We sometimes forget our doctors are human but Dr. Weston reminds us on every page how wrong we are.
