Brain Surgeon: A Doctor's Inspiring Encounters with Mortality and Miracles by Keith Black

Keith Black, MD is among the best and brightest neurosurgeons and scientists in the world, responsible for revolutionary research and groundbreaking procedures of which most of the medical establishment never dared to dream. In BRAIN SURGEON, Black invites the reader to shadow his daily journeys into the brain, or, what he calls "tiger country": the treacherous territory one enters when performing brain surgery, wherein one wrong move, one small mistake, can cost the patient's life. Candidly rendered, BRAIN SURGEON combines amazing patient stories and fascinating insights into the inner workings of the brain. It also offers a window into the remarkable mind of the medical hero himself, who possesses the unflinching confidence of a master surgeon alongside overwhelming respect and affection for his patients and an unwavering optimism for the future.

Brain Surgeon Reviews

"In the pages of this book you will become acquainted with the wisdom, experiences, and intuitive powers of Dr. Keith Black...a warrior who fights to allow his patients to continue to touch and experience the world, and to preserve the place within us that houses our very nature." --Forest Whitaker
"BRAIN SURGEON is an inspirational book about true heroes-readers will marvel at Keith Black's achievements both as a doctor and as a man, and will be in awe of his patients' courage and will to survive." --Denzel Washington
I often get asked who the best doctor is in the world for various ailments. Truth is, it's a hard question. When it comes to brain tumors, however, the answer is pretty clear: Keith Black. He is the doctor people find when all the other doctors have given up. He is "that" guy. This book is about the heroic patients he has already helped and saved. If you want a rare, behind-the-curtain look at the life of one of the most pre-eminent neurosurgeons in the world, pick up "Brain Surgeon". And Keith, from one brain surgeon to another: thank you for honoring our profession. Well done. --Sanjay Gupta, MD, Chief Medical Correspondent, CNN and "New York Times" bestselling author of "Chasing Life"
