And Finally: A Neurosurgeon’s Reflections on Life (Paperback)Henry Marsh (author)
Chronicling the bewildering transition from doctor to patient that the former brain surgeon and author of Do No Harm experienced upon his cancer diagnosis, And Finally is a masterful meditation on mortality and the importance of a life well lived.
As a retired brain surgeon, Henry Marsh thought he understood illness, but even he was unprepared for the impact of his diagnosis of advanced cancer. In And Finally, he navigates the bewildering transition from doctor to patient. As the days pass, his mind turns to his career, to the people and places he has known, and to creative projects still to be completed.
Yet he is also more entranced than ever by the mysteries of science and nature, by his love for his family, and - most of all - by what it is to be alive.
