Breathing for Two by Wolf Pascoe

617OePS3WXL._SL1000_

PRAISE FOR BREATHING FOR TWO:
"In this page-turner, veteran anesthesiologist Pascoe offers a riveting portrait of surgery's most harrowing relationship and a breathtaking (pun intended!) account of what it means to hold another person's life in one's hands."  -- Amazon reader

"What I most enjoyed about this very personal journey is that Pascoe reveals in an unflinching way his mistakes, narrow brushes with disaster, as well as his victories, and how it all has changed him during his thirty years of anesthesia practice." -- Amazon reader

"It's the kind of book that makes you deeply interested in things you never thought about before." -- Amazon reader

OVERVIEW:
Ever wonder why giving anesthesia is described as hours of boredom, moments of panic? With gentle precision, anesthesiologist Wolf Pascoe teases apart an overlooked world and unveils the eggshell dance that takes place at the head of an operating table.

MORE PRAISE . . .
"As Atul Gawande gives readers the surgeon's perspective, so Wolf Pascoe lets us know what it's like to be at the other end of the table. -- Amazon reader

"I'm a doctor and I thought that this book would be only mildly interesting, but I found that I was captivated and in suspense wanting to see how his difficult cases turned out." -- Amazon reader

"Pascoe's honest prose reminds us that we're all human - flawed, fragile, and doing our best to navigate the unpredictable with the tools we have at hand. Beautifully written, easy to read."   -- Amazon reader

Intrigued or spooked by what happens in an operating theatre? Breathing for Two is a seat on the stage, a short book that will change the way you think about life, and breath.
