In his best-selling book War Doctor, trauma surgeon David Nott recounts learning to perform an emergency caesarean section in Kabul, removing a detonator from a woman’s leg in Syria and following directions sent by text to amputate an upper arm and shoulder in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Driven by a desire to help others and the thrill of danger, David discusses his many close encounters with death and establishing the David Nott Foundation with his wife, Elly.
