    Have we found another Theodore Dalrymple? The reviews on this book are very positive. I’ve been looking for a new book to read and nothing was grabbing my attention. This might. I downloaded the Kindle sample. I’ll see how that goes.

  2. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    The free sample of this was intriguing. It’s well written. Nothing bad to say about it from the sample. But I’m not sure if I’m going to outlay 12.99 for it. But I would say this book promises to be a rare glimpse inside the occupation of a brain surgeon. I’m not sure how political the book will get in terms of dressing-down the NHS.
