My Lobotomy by Howard Dully & Charles Flemming


This is an inspiring story about Lobotomist Dr. Freeman’s youngest patient. At the age of 12, a boy undergoes a permanent life-changing operation. Howard Dully spent nearly forty years of his life trying to understand what happened.


I was surprised by how captivating this book was. First reading of the summary, I was horrified. I’m very glad I read this book. I feel it was a real eye-opener. I do recommend this book with the cliché “truth is stranger than fiction.”
