Katrina Firlik is a neurosurgeon who describes her time as a resident and practicing neurosurgeon. It is fascinating to learn about the behind-the-scenes of something I actually experienced! She describes when patients come in to the ER (which I did!) and patients who have brain tumors operated on (which I have!). Especially cool is that she is a woman in a very male-dominated career who has proven herself successful as a neurosurgeon and a writer. I recommend this book for anyone looking for a book that will break down knowledge about the brain in an easily readable (and not gross at all) way. Also if you are just interested in behind-the-scenes stories (or you enjoy ER or Scrubs or Behind the Music) like me, it will totally draw you in.
