Not funny if you are not American
on 30 July 2001
This book has a lot of potential to be funny. But it wasn't, at least not to me. Maybe that is because I am not a doctor, working in private practice in a reasonably affluent part of the US. And I am not familiar with doctors who are working in private practice in a reasonably affluent part of the US. Or maybe it's just me. The book is madeup of 57 short essays, containing humourous advice, aimed at doctors. However, the stories are about filling in insurance forms, playing golf, how your receptionist should behave, not joining a partnership. And most of them mean nothing to me.
