Direct Red – A Surgeons View of Her Life or Death Profession – Gabriel Weston

From the time she was in school, graduated from and received an Art’s degree, with absolutely no inkling about medicine, she enrolls in her mid 20’s and hasn’t looked back.

Now in her 30’s, graduated, she’s succeeded and works as a ENT in a British Hospital.

As she starts her career, she has the feelings as if she is an imposter, even when operating she says it is as if she is on the outside looking in.

From the stark and deft observations, she tells her personal observations as sharp and observant as her scalpel is awaiting to perform life or death surgeries.

The Rawness of her honesty gives this small memoir of her continuing surgical career with all of her doubts, feelings, mistakes and triumphs are recorded.

Starkly revealing as well as human.  This is a rare look into an area where before was shut off from the rest of the world, unless you have a pass to experience it for yourself ans I have when I was enrolled in nursing school.
