I was totally engrossed reading this memoir by Matt Morgan who is an intensive care consultant. Reading this, you see just how fragile life is, but also the incredible advances in medical science that are happening all the time.
It is well-structured with chapters relating to all the main organs and structures, for instance, a chapter on the immune system-infections, pneumonia, sepsis, the lungs, the heart, the brain etc. There are a great variety of cases, for example, Polio-I've not read about that in medical memoirs before, he tells what an iron lung does/how it works etc. Not written in a brief, garbled, over-technical fashion-indeed it was so easy to read and so interesting.
Right from the first chapter, I could already see this would be absolutely fascinating. I love this type of book, and I certainly loved this.
