Summary The author provides a rare glimpse into what it means to be entrusted with the most precious of responsibilities, a young human life. Charting his decades of medical experience, Rowley touches on an array of issues, from the high-stakes management of tiny pre-term babies to the serious impacts of drugs, alcohol and technology on developing minds. Real-life cases and practical advice are interwoven throughout a candid, compassionate narrative. What is revealed is a tender and profound portrait of a medical professional at the very centre of what matters, a doctor who always adopts a humane, holistic view and who writes openly about the personal impact of a career in medicine
