About this work


"As a trainee doctor, A. J. Lees was enthralled by his mentors: esteemed neurologists who in their work combined the precision of mathematicians with the solemnity of undertakers. Today their clinical methods honed at the bedside are in danger of extinction, replaced by a slavish adherence to algorithms, protocols, process and a worship of machines. In this series of brilliant autobiograpical essay, Lees take us on a grand tour of his neurological career, giving the read insight into the art of listening, observation and imagination that the best neurologists still reply on to heal minds and fix brains."--
