This is a book all doctors should read. Michael writes extremely well - and takes lots of digs at doctors. These are well-deserved pot-shots - and will help doctors to learn to take themselves less seriously and lighten up a bit !
This is a wise and compassionate book written by a senior and humane surgeon. I learned a lot by reading it - and patients will learn a lot about the trials and tribulations doctors go through every day by reading it. It can help to restore trust between doctors and patients by helping patients to see the doctor's perspective . Please read it !
