It may seem odd to say brain surgery and what leads up to it is entertaining, but in this book it is. The book follows the life of it's author as he becomes a neurosurgeon. I found the description of hospitals and their sub-cultures interesting. You feel as if you are there when these events are unfolding. His explanation of the brain's functions were far from boring. You don't have to be in the medical field to enjoy this book. This was an easy read and well worth my time.
