Description - Just One More Question: Stories from a Life in Neurology by Niall Tubridy
An eye-opening, gripping and moving account of dealing with some of medicine's most complicated challenges.
As a trainee doctor, fascinated by the ways the brain and nervous system signal problems with the body's wiring, Niall Tubridy fell in love with neurology. This was high stakes detective work where answers could be life-changing.
The young doctor who relished the intellectual puzzle soon became even more intrigued by the human stories behind each set of symptoms. And he found his own character tested. How do you handle such high pressure work - often with sad outcomes for patients - and remain grounded and positive? Can you?
Just One More Question is the story of Niall Tubridy's life in neurology. It includes gripping accounts of his patients - encounters that are, by turn, moving, dramatic and funny - and using simple and illuminating language he explains well-known conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease.
In addition, he reflects candidly on his life and the reasons he, a doctor's son, went into medicine and what he has learned about himself along the way. With great honesty, he scrutinizes his own actions and reactions so that Just One More Question becomes a brave exploration of the big question - how can I be a better doctor?Dr. Tubridy's book is an extraordinary and revealing insight into the human challenge of working in this most complex area of medicine.
