"What a terrific book....[Weston] leaves you feeling that if push came to shove you'd want to be operated on by her.” —Nicholas Shakespeare, author of Bruce Chatwin: A Biography The continuing popularity of doctor shows on TV—from Scrubs, House, and Grey's Anatomy to the television phenomenon ER—indicates a widespread fascination with all things medical. Direct Red, by practicing ear, nose, and throat surgical specialist Gabriel Weston, takes readers behind the scenes and into the operating room for a fascinating look at what really goes on on the other side of the hospital doors. "A Surgeon's View of her Life-and-Death Profession,” Weston's Direct Red is written not only with knowledge and insight, but with compassion, honesty, and literary flair.
