Henry Marsh: Of Life and Death

The publishing world might not have predicted that a book about brain surgery would sell hundreds of thousands of copies. But when neurosurgeon Henry Marsh embarked on a writing career, readers were enthralled by the wisdom and candour of Do No Harm. His third book, And Finally, explores Marsh’s challenging transition from doctor to patient following a diagnosis of terminal illness. He discusses this poignant meditation on the things that matter with Sally Magnusson.
