Michael Crichton tells his own story in his memoirs. Originally published in 1988, he tells of his world travels but, more importantly, leads you though his inner journey. I bought this book new when in came out and reread it ever few years. Coming from a family of bookworms, we have fought over who gets to reread it next. My copy is well worn, stained and dog earred but I wouldn’t trade it in.
He begins the book by talking about his years in medical school with the opening line of the book being “It is not easy to cut through a human head with a hacksaw…” (describing his required autopsy at Harvard).
