Reviews
..."With self-deprecating humor he relates how he sweated as he removed a hatchet from a patient' s brain under telephone guidance from a Vancouver neurosurgeon, how he hovered over the patient terrified that the venous sinus he had closedwould start bleeding again, then gaped in amazement when the patient eloped to watch his buddy (who had implanted the hatchet in his head during an argument)compete in the bronc riding at the Williams Lake Stampede."
-Joan R. Stogryn MD, "British Columbia Medical Journal"
