Description

Harvey Cushing was the leading figure in the creation of modern neurosurgery. This biography traces his medical school education; his hospital-based surgical career; and his career as a battlefield surgeon during World War I. He has an enduring place in the field of medicine and his name has become part of medical lexicography.

"It is beautifully written and illustrated, a pleasure to read, and paints Cushing 'warts and all.' A must for anyone with an interest in the development of our profession and with the life of this extraordinary man."British Journal of Hospital Medicine
