Journey to the Center of the Mind: Life, Health and Happiness through the Eyes of a World-Renowned Neurosurgeon – a best-selling book of interviews published in Romania a few years ago, is now available to English-speaking readers. The interviews with world-renowned neurosurgeon, university professor, and inventor of a drain system for the brain Alexandru Vlad Ciurea are a window into a life lived with humility, always in the best interest of the patient and of the fellow man.
