BOOK REVIEW Hollinger faces cancer with courage and faith in her brief but inspiring memoir. Happily married with two sons, Hollinger was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2010. She grew up in Spanish Harlem—“Mister Rogers would not have wanted to be my neighbor.” After an incident in public school, she went to a private Catholic school, where her behavior was tempered by a positive disciplinary approach. In spite of a childhood of some hard knocks, she was accepted to Dartmouth and, after graduation, worked at the school as an admissions officer. She then attended Northeastern School of Law and accepted Christ as her savoir. During treatment for cancer and other afflictions, she found herself repeatedly drawn to Bible verses that offered support and guidance; she also experienced what she believed to be a miracle. As the illness progressed with all its complications, she remained committed to God’s hand in her life: “He is in control.” Although eventually confined to a wheelchair, she nonetheless remained upbeat and positive and thankful for the kindnesses of friends and family. Hollinger writes of her experiences with intelligence, and her story is marked by clarity, humour, humility and gratitude. Refreshingly, there are no attempts to overdramatize her situation: “Shingles or no shingles, my family, sister, and I had a good time.” Photos of the author and her family are included, and the book ends with a list of Bible verses that hold special meaning for the author. Also, 10 percent of profits from sales of the book are earmarked for St. Jude’s Research Hospital. Well-written, uplifting account of a woman buoyed by faith, family and friends in her fight against cancer.

This book contains some useful information particularly some of the less common presentations, particularly more acute sports-injury type problems & presentations in children.
It suffers greatly from being insufficiently edited as the language, grammar & typos on every page are very off-putting & even misleading on occasion.
It is quite repetitive, which I suppose means each chapter can be read in isolation but makes it very boring to read as a text book & also makes it twice as large as it needs to be.
A section on the history ("subjective examination") & the limitations of physical tests & the nature of red flags could probably be given once & each chapter could then concentrate on different problems & their distinguishing features & management.
There is very little detail about specific exercises / Physio which would have been useful for a GP, as seeing an NHS Physio can take 6 weeks or more.
The layout and use of pictures makes this book particularly easy to read in comparison with other text books.
It's a definite 5 star rating and I would advise those in associated professions to purchase this book it has definitely helped me .
