Henry Marsh has spent a lifetime operating on the surgical frontline, and his love of neurosurgery has never wavered. After retiring from the NHS Marsh carried out pro-bono work in Ukraine and Nepal; in Admissions Marsh describes the difficulties of working in these impoverished countries, and the insights it has given him into the practice of medicine. Further unearthing memories of his early days as a medical student, he explores the difficulties of dealing in probabilities rather than certainties, and how the overwhelming urge to prolong life can come at a tragic cost for patients and those who love them.
