As a trainee doctor, fascinated by the ways the brain and nervous system signal problems with the body's wiring, Niall Tubridy fell in love with neurology. This was high stakes detective work where answers could be life-changing. The young doctor who relished the intellectual puzzle soon became even more intrigued by the human stories behind each set of symptoms. And he found his own character tested. How do you handle such high pressure work - often with sad outcomes for patients - and remain grounded and positive? Can you? 'Just One More Question' is the story of Niall Tubridy's life in neurology. It includes gripping accounts of his patients - encounters that are, by turn, moving, dramatic and funny - and using simple and illuminating language he explains well-known conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease.

What the critics say

Compelling ... colourful, thoughtful Sunday Independent [My brother] has written a book which has to be one of the most extraordinary books written in Irish medical history! I would say that, wouldn't I? But it is great. It's really good, really accessible, a super read. We're all very proud of him Ryan Tubridy [Tubridy] renders sometimes complex medical concepts understandable for the general reader ... good on the sometimes unbearable pressures on doctors Irish Times Fascinating Liz Nugent It's a most readable book. There's no jargon in it RTÉ - Seán O'Rourke [Oliver] Sacks hoped that his neurological tales ... could bring us closer to where the psychic and the physical meet ... Tubridy's concerns are less rarefied. He wants us to understand the human toll that illness takes Sunday Times Niall's sense of wonder at the human brain is enormously clear even with almost three decades of work in the field under his belt RTÉ Lifestyle Very interesting and very entertaining Pat Kenny Fascinating ... The book teems with interesting characters Sunday Business Post Will make you think in a whole new way about the human brain Ireland AM A book that will fascinate you with the patients' tales but leave you at the end pondering the notion of what life really is Journal.ie Simple and illuminating Irish News Written in a very accessible way for non-medical people, like myself RTÉ - Dave Fanning
