    If you're still wondering about a career in Neurosurgery, I'd advise reading the book "Do No Harm" by Henry Marsh. All surgical careers are stressful, but neurosurgery really takes the biscuit. The author writes about how his career choice pretty much ruined his first marriage

    If you really enjoy maths, a professor wouldn't have anywhere near the levels of stress
    (Of course if you hate maths, you might find yourself hating life and everything in it as a result. Choose wisely)

    Another good one by a neurosurgeon is "When Breath Becomes Air" by Paul Kalanithi: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0165X8W...ng=UTF8&btkr=1
