His new book Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on An Imperfect Science is based on his experiences and what he found up close: "how messy, uncertain, and also surprising medicine turns out to be." Sociologist Cheryl Bernard is the author of the book, Veiled Courage: Inside the Afghan Women's Resistance. Under the Taliban, the group known as RAWA (The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan), educated girls and women in underground schools, ran small businesses, and secretly photographed Taliban beatings and executions.
