Having seen Dr Rosemary on tv many times and appreciating her comments and advice, I thought the book would be full of many anecdotes. Instead, there were just a few stories detailed at considerable length. They are related in a sort of chatty format which, in my opinion, doesn't work. A lot of the narrative is of the he/she said and I said/thought context. I'm not really interested in the boring, daily chat that goes on, I want to get to the nitty gritty quite quickly.
I think the cases written about would not be unusual to many doctors and there seemed to be nothing particularly unusual about them in the book. The writing is fairly basic and naive and, to me, disappointing.
