Subscribers joined us on Friday, June 9 for an evening with Henry Marsh, hosted by Matt Rudd, where they discussed the exhilarating highs and devastating lows of a lifetime spent operating on the surgical frontline. 

Henry Marsh was one of Britain’s foremost brain surgeons, having spent a lifetime operating on the surgical frontline and working as Consultant Neurosurgeon at Atkinson Morley's/St George's Hospital in London for thirty years.

Following the success of his memoir Do No Harm, in Henry’s new book Admissions: A Life in Brain Surgery, he faces up to the overwhelming burden of responsibility that can come with trying to reduce human suffering. Unearthing memories of his early days as a medical student, and the experiences that shaped him as a young surgeon, he explores the difficulties of a profession that deals in probabilities rather than certainties, and where the overwhelming urge to prolong life can come at a tragic cost for both patients and for those who love them

In this searing, provocative and deeply personal memoir, the bestselling author finds new purpose in his own life as he approaches the end of his professional career, and a fresh understanding of what matters to us all in the end.
