Acclaimed neuroscientist and bestselling author, Rahul Jandial, provides an honest account of the valuable lessons we can learn from humanity at it's most vulnerable - patients confronted with their own mortality.

About the Author

Dr Rahul Jandial, MD, PhD, is a dual-trained neurosurgeon and neurobiologist. He is known for undertaking complex cancer operations and overseeing groundbreaking science at the Jandial Lab in Los Angeles. Through his non-profit International Neurosurgical Children's Association (INCA) he travels around the world performing and teaching brain surgery in under-served hospitals in Central and South America, south-east Asia and eastern Europe. Many first came to know him from his columns in Vice and his appearances on American news shows and international channels, including Discovery and National Geographic, among others. His first book, Life Lessons from a Brain Surgeon, became a Sunday Times bestseller.


A beautifully written and fearless depiction of both brain surgery and the mind of a surgeon. Riveting. * Jim Down, author of Life Support *
A reminder that what makes us stellar physicians and surgeons are not our skills with our hands and/our knowledge but rather our empathy and ability to connect with our patients. * Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa *
Is this a memoir or a science book? An expose of the shortcoming of our healthcare system or a paean to the wonders of modern medicine? The answer is YES, to all those things and more. Jandial takes us deep into the day-to-day life of his profession as a brain surgeon while simultaneously taking us even deeper into the inner-workings of our own biology. It's an unconventional approach, and a bit disarming at first blush, but pays off in spades. I loved this book. * James Nestor, New York Times bestselling author of Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art *
Most of us say 'it's not brain surgery' when we talk about our work. But Rahul Jandial's work - and life - is just that. And he loves both enough to fight for every moment of every life. A searingly honest, fascinating account of lives and minds entwined. * Stevie Spring CBE, Chairman of the British Council and the charity Mind *
A powerful testimony to the skill of a world-class surgeon, and a soul-searching exploration of the vulnerability that makes him human. * Leah Hazard, author of the Sunday Times bestseller Hard Pushed *
Incredible storytelling * Dr Rangan Chatterjee *
Filled with powerful stories of human trauma and resilience - including his own * Telegraph *
'It's a brilliant book... There are lessons in every paragraph....Get it now.' Chris Evans * Chris Evans *
