Summary
The remarkable stories told in this book are filled with the lessons of humanity. They describe that sacrosanct connection between two people we call the doctor-patient relationship, and that other relationship between the mentor and student, so important to the perpetuation of medical knowledge, judgement, wisdom and character
Summary
Nuland (surgery and social and policy studies, Yale U.) presents some of the many stories he has heard from colleagues during his 30 years and more of clinical practice. Most are interesting for their own sake, he says, but he has selected them for the lessons they teach not only about medicine, but also about life and humanity in general. He has protected the confidentiality of the transaction between doctor and patient by changing not only the names of the two, but also physical traits, professions, and other identifying characteristics. Most of the stories are in first person, as he heard them himself. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
