What is it like to be a brain surgeon? How does it feel to hold someone's life in your hands, to cut through the stuff that creates thought, feeling and reason? How do you live with the consequences when it all goes wrong? Do No Harm offers an unforgettable insight into the highs and lows of a life dedicated to operating on the human brain, in all its exquisite complexity. With astonishing candour and compassion, Henry Marsh reveals the exhilarating drama of surgery, the chaos and confusion of a busy modern hospital and above all the need for hope when faced with life's most agonising decisions.

Professional reviews

"‘Exquisitely attuned to the tense and transient bond between doctor and patient […] and hilariously impatient of hospital management, Marsh draws us deep into medicine's most difficult art and lifts our spirits.’ IAN MCEWAN, Author. ‘Marsh has nothing to hide. […] He tries not to extinguish hope when there is barely any, and not to be forced to operate when the outlook is futile.’ THE TIMES"
