An improbable memoir of a man who was a heart surgeon, a mountain climber, and a doctor who worked for humanitarian organizations. The narrative takes the reader through a kaleidoscope of scenes--a troubled childhood in a small California town, cardiac surgery gone awry, a group of mountaineers trapped in a snow cave on Nanga Parbat in Pakistan, a humanitarian surgical team working in the besieged city of Misurata during the Libyan civil war. Sometimes with humility and humour, often with brutal honesty Sinclair weaves a story of his turbulent life. The tale is replete with frustrations and successes, triumphs and tragedies. There is a failed marriage followed by a fulfilling love. Your hair will stand on end during some passages describing events in operating rooms around the world and you will experience the fear of climbing cold, remote peaks – Vinson, Denali, Everest, Shishapangma, and Annapurna IV. You will smile frequently, occasionally you will laugh out loud and you may even shed a few tears while reading this fascinating book. Finally you will understand the forces that shaped this man's extraordinary life.
