Reviews

`[Nashef's] honest, unvarnished writing about his life and death work has given his readers new insights into the reality of life inside the operating theatre.'

-- Stephen Sackur * BBC World News `HARDtalk' *

`Enthralling and outspoken.'

-- Andrew Billen * The Times *

`It's funny, sad, uplifting and hopeful. Samer Nashef's writing style is easy for the lay person to understand (his description of how to do a heart transplant is unforgettable) but is also interesting to those who have some knowledge of cardiology ... Whether you work in medicine or are just interested in how heart problems can be corrected by surgery, this is a great read. I read this book in a couple of days because the stories were so varied and enthralling.'

* Sam Still Reading *

Praise for The Naked Surgeon:

`A Malcolm Gladwell-esque look at what happens in operating theatres ... Nashef's humanity and compassion shine through.'

* The Times *

Praise for The Naked Surgeon:

`One can't help but think of Henry Marsh when reading Samer Nashef ... [He] writes clearly, with plentiful moments of humour.'

* The Independent *

Praise for The Naked Surgeon:

`[The Naked Surgeon] takes a scalpel to the medical profession and asks if patients get the standard of care they have the right to expect from their surgeons ... A valuable resource.'

* Irish Independent *
