loved Kellee Slater's book. And not just because she's a transplant surgeon and
I have had a liver transplant. At times I felt like she had been reading my
mail!' - Derryn Hinch

everything is in place and both teams are ready, someone cries out `Cross-clamp!'
Then it is on for young and old as the clock is ticking. Up to this point, it
has been a careful and considered surgery. Now it is all about speed. We move
like Edward Scissorhands, chop, chop, chop. This is the trickiest part - to
move fast without cutting something you shouldn't.

Welcome to the adrenaline-charged world of transplant
surgery. Top Australian surgeon Dr Kellee Slater invites us inside the operating theatre
with her dedicated team as she performs life-or-death surgery on a newborn
baby, brings a dying liver back to life with a staple gun in each hand, and undertakes
the confronting task of removing donor organs. How to Do a Liver Transplant is an enthralling - and often blackly funny
- glimpse over the shoulder of a gifted surgeon.
