Thoroughly enjoyable, laugh-out-loud series of stories about doctoring, and tongue-in-cheek skewering of the British medical establishment. O'Donnell has a very sensitive BS detector, and has collected many examples of pretentious prose, very common among officialdom, where the meaning is hard to fathom. I am reading it in bed, and frequently wake my wife up to read her a gem - either that or I am laughing so much the bed is shaking and she wakes up and wants to hear what has tickled me. He is a hoot! He is the sort of GP I wish I had, wise, very well informed, and understanding the crucial importance of two-way communication between doctor and patient. Unfortunately a dying species.
