1.58 Seconds allows readers to candidly explore the relationship between life and death, a surgeon’s daily game of tug-of-war.
Belleville, St. Michaels, Barbados (Vocus/PRWEB) March 02, 2011
A new book explores the integral relationship between living and dying as it brings readers into the operating room.
In 1.58 Seconds, author Dr. Alfred Sparman provides a revealing look into near-death episodes through a fictional take on his own experiences. Vividly descriptive, the book gives readers a captivating look at the pressures inside the operating room. Among many gripping scenes, it details a setting involving a 9mm pistol pointed at the chest of a potential patient and the fractured facial bones of another.
“The easy interchange between living and dying has always captured my interest,” Sparman says.
Straying from a doctor’s stereotypical medical textbook, 1.58 Seconds allows readers to candidly explore the relationship between life and death, a surgeon’s daily game of tug-of-war. The book supplements an entertaining storyline with practical education, providing a glossary for all medical terminology used.
“This is medicine written in a simplistic, engaging and interesting format,” Sparman says. “It’s fictional reality.”
