An intensely human record of a young surgeon's apprenticeship - a step-by-step chronicle of the blood-and-guts process by which he acquired the kind of skill one has to depend on in an emergency. It takes us into the operating suite, stands us over the anesthesized patient, almost hands us the scalpel.
