Starting out as a young man leaving home to study for a life in neurosurgery, through his forced retirement at the peak of his career from an occupational acquired illness,Geissinger's memoir provides a very personal insight into the mind and motivation of a man at a unique transition in neuroscience. The excitement of the surgical challenges dissecting the nervous system is palpable.As the story progresses, we learn that his talents extended well beyond medicine.

A fascinating read, particularly for any aspiring physician.

Format: Paperback
The odyssey of a young man's education to become a physician and his training to become a surgeon. His association with a competent colleague in a private practice provides illuminating cases of neurologic problems described in enviable recall over the years. The disparate nature of his avocations is unique. The "hands on" creation and mainttenance of a ranch producing purebred breeding cattle is one time consuming but satisfying diversion. His artistry in designing and handcrafting exquisite wood furniture using traditional tools and techniques is arresting. All this is described in meticulous detail against a background of heart rending mishaps. There is no hint of imperious self importance. Finally there are provocative comments on the current status of medical practice and the whole health industry. There is much in the book for thought provoking admiration for anyone in medicine.

I loved this book! I was lucky enough to work with the author for several years in the operating room. Hearing some of his personal memories bring memories back to me. Dr. Geissinger truly was a gifted and dedicated surgeon and this book shows the depth of his dedication and personal integrity. Thank you Doctor for writing this wonderful book. Ginger Bellflower
