Rules for Survival is a neurosurgeon's practical guide to harnessing hope and optimism within your life. Acclaimed neuroscientist and bestselling author, Rahul Jandial, provides a raw and unflinching account of the valuable lessons we can learn from humanity in its rawest, most v...ulnerable form - patients who are abruptly confronted with their own mortality. Rahul has spent the last 20 years treating patients whose lives hang in the balance, from keeping a gun victim's heart pumping with his own hand, to saving a woman from paralysis and performing brain surgery while time is running out on a haemorrhaging patient. Rules for Survival distils the resilience, courage and belief he has witnessed from patients and explains how he has harnessed them into 10 practical rules for living a better, more fulfilled life. Part memoir, part practical guide, this book will equip you with rules to help you cope with the difficulties in life, be it stress, failure, trauma, loss, addiction or identity. Jandial will help you find purpose in the face of futility, strength during times of loss and how to live life to the fullest.
