Example text

I remember one disastrous job interview I had, I told a joke and ^vhen one makes a joke during an intervicAV, people don't like it. It w^as a silly, flippant joke, rather juvenile so I certainly didn't get that job I 54 2. T H E P I O N E E R S An3Avay--going back to Maida Vale —I didn't make a juvenile joke and I did get the job. But I do make some jokes that embarrass me afterwards. The first thing is there ^^/ere these psychiatrists that I never met and I'm a bit sorry about this but I didn't mend my fences enough, I didn't make sure that the human side had gone properly.

One of the things I had in mind v^hen I said about the expensive treatment for Alzheimer's disease was —one of my cynical jokes about brain surgery —is that by the time you get a rich businessman on the table, he's so demented that he's lost all his money and he can't pay you a big fee. Secondly, I kne\v a brain surgeon, an immensely strong, po\verful man who literally did a 23-hour operation — they changed the operating team halfway through.

There were a lot of psychiatrists in London who had senile dementia patients, Alzheimer's patients or "presenile dementia," as it Avas then called, unless they were over the age of 65. They required diagnosis, "air encephalography," ^vhich meant boring holes through the parietal bones into the parietal lobes to put air into the ventricles because it w^as the only v^ay you could locate many tumours. Below the age of 65 it w^as thought justifiable to exclude tumour. We had Valentine Logue at Maida Vale, who was one of the best, the leading brain surgeon in the country at the time.
