            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.

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.

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.
