So You Want to be a Brain Surgeon? Reviews

So you want to be a Brain Surgeon? could be your smallest investment into your biggest decision. Black Bag (Bristol Medical School Gazette) So you want to be a Brain Surgeon? could just as easily have been titled "Everything you ever wanted to know about medical careers but were afraid to ask!" Northwing (University of Sheffield Medical School Gazette) So you want to be a brain surgeon? comes out on top as the best all rounder. In addition to its synopsis of some 80 careers, the book is also full of useful addresses and telephone numbers of various professional bodies (and not just in medicine), making it invaluable for ready reference. Student BMJ What a fantastic little book! This really is an indispensable careers guide. It covers just about all branches of medicine...the book is clearly laid out. All in all, I learned a great deal about our esteemed profession from this book, but most of all I discovered that if you want a job with minimal stress, don't become a brain surgeon!
