Format: Hardcover
This book is a wonderful read. I learned a lot about his career. And it opened up a whole new life to me. For all 20 years of my life so far, I have seen Granddad as only a grandfather, but reading this showed me what his life was like before we grandkids came along. He has done so much more than I could ever have imagined before.
Its an inspirational book from start to finish.

Format: Hardcover
Great doctoring involves a high level of technical skill combined with an ability to treat the patient as a whole, body and mind. Joe Murray's relationships with his patients makes this book a must read for anyone involved with the medical profession, as a doctor or a patient.

Format: Paperback
As a surgical trainee, i find this book truly inspirational. Murray combines being a surgeon and his private life in a way which is synergistic to produce the best possible outcome. But what transpired most was his natural surgical talent and conviction to things he believe is true. As a read, the book uses simple language and any reader will feel as if Murray is telling his story verbally.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Sean L. Sawh MD on November 5, 2007
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book that every medical student and professional should be encouraged to read early in the career. Dr. Muarry was a phenomenal Surgeon and this book is an excellent narrative of some of the cases that help to shape his career. Equally astonishing is how this busy Surgeon always kept his family life a priority, and recognized the contributions of his Wife to his career and ability to perform at the level that made him one of the greatest Surgeons in history.
