This isn‘t my typical read at all. However, I found it really interesting due to the fact that along the way, you find out lots of little facts about the brain. I read this pretty quickly. A really good read, loved it.

A neurologist takes us through multiple cases he‘s dealt with over a short course of time. Some very interesting cases with many diseases I‘d never even heard of. A great read, especially if you enjoy books like The Tale of the Dueling Neurosurgeons.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Good medical writing. At times, the vignettes were a bit short and abrupt but overall very interesting and an easy read in spite of medical jargon.

2016, Book 3 "There is no way to delegate the act of easing someone out. All the chart orders in the world can't capture the weight of the medications that will be slowly dripped into the vein. In the modern era, I am still not free to be the agent of someone's demise. It's not in me to do the deed anyway, and it would not matter one way or another if the next ballot question on physician-assisted suicide passes or is defeated."
