Publisher's Summary

This is a stunning account of the life of a surgeon: what it is like to cut into people's bodies and the terrifying - literally life and death - decisions that have to be made. There are accounts of operations that go wrong; of doctors who go to the bad; why autopsies are necessary; what it feels like to insert your knife into someone.

Book is good but...

Story is absolutely amazing, but the reading is poor, the reader misses out so much information that I get lost while reading with it.

Chapters and paragraphs missing

Although the book itself is fantastic and educational as a whole, the audiobook was completely unsuitable to listen to alongside reading.
Entire chapters and key paragraphs were simply left out, which is unacceptable.
