Powering Through Life
Regardless of what profession one is in – whether the CEO of a firm, an actress in Bollywood, a journalist or a surgeon, one has to be able to deal with adversity in the workplace. Being a Woman Surgeon by Dr. Preeti R John, is a compilation of personal narratives that offers a vivid portrayal of the culture of surgery from a woman’s perspective. It is the first anthology of its kind in the world, with contributions by a multidisciplinary group of women surgeons.
“Despite differences in age, background and race, we have one thing in common: we have persevered to become trained in this demanding profession and are passionate in what we do – making a difference in other people’s lives.” Dr Preeti R. John, along with other women surgeons narrate stories and anecdotes from a field they believe is as gruelling as it is satisfying.
