Acclaimed neurosurgeon and bestselling author, Rahul Jandial, has spent the last 20 years treating patients whose lives hang in the balance, from treating patients with rare forms of stage 4 brain cancer, to keeping a gun victim's heart pumping with his own hand. Rules for Surviv...al is his account of the resilience, courage and belief he has witnessed in his patients, and the lessons he has learned from them. Part memoir, part guide, this profound and moving book explores the strength of humanity at its most vulnerable and shows us how to cope with life's challenges, be it stress, failure, trauma, loss or addiction. Jandial will help you find purpose in the face of futility, strength during times of loss and joy in the everyday.
