Surgeons have long been known for their allergy to doubt, an unsurprising trait in professionals who must play God, routinely risking someone else''s life to do their job. But in this illuminating memoir, Gabriel Weston reveals the emotions, passions, and doubts normally hidden behind a surgeon''s mask.

Interweaving her own story with those of her patients, old and young, Weston evokes both the humor and the heartbreak that come from medicine''s daily confrontation with the ultimate unknowability of the human body. With prose that does not flinch from the raw, graphic realities of a surgeon''s day, Weston confronts life, death, and the unique difficulties of being a female surgeon in a heavily male-dominated profession.
