In November 2006, Chris O'Brien was diagnosed with glioblastoma multi-forme, a malignant and extremely aggressive form of cancer. As one of the country's most eminent cancer specialists, O'Brien knows that the chances of beating the brain tumour are tiny; even with chemotherapy, surgery and radiation few sufferers survive past 12 months. Nevertheless, he is determined to beat the odds. With the support of his close family and an international network of surgeons, friends and well-wishers, O'Brien took the option of radical brain surgery under the supervision of his friend Dr Charlie Teo. His level of fitness, optimistic outlook and relative youth (he was 55 when diagnosed) give him a shot at survival. Currently he is in remission. Funny, charming and fearless, O'Brien has said he is not afraid to die - but he doesn't plan to just yet. Here, in his inspiring memoir, he takes a look back over his life and the forces which shaped him - from his modest beginnings as part of a typical Australian-Irish family, to his early years as a doctor and football player, to life, "living on the smell of an oily rag" as a young doctor with a family in London and the US, through to the shocking news which literally changed his life.

This is a very interesting read about a very interesting man. Many have seen Chris O'Brien on the TV show "RPA" and so felt a strong connection to him when it was announced that he had a brain tumour.

I found this book to very informative as to what the path a medical student must travel to obtain their goal of working in their chosen field. It is not just about RPA or Chris' tumour which I was grateful for, it is about a man with a passion for medicine. I wish Chris and his family all the best.

A great read, highly recommended.

This is a very touching book and makes me wonder about the scheme of things that can take a wonderful talented and compassionate life and turn it upside down. The world will be a poorer place when we lose Chris O'Brien.
