I love reading readable books from health professionals. It truly helps inform me of their world since I can only sit on the other side of the examination table. You may know some of my favorite doctor/authors – Dr. Danielle Ofri for instance. She has written several books about things patients have taught her and writes for the NY Times. Then there’s M.D./patient Rachel Naomi Remen who is also trying to help health professionals recapture the enthusiasm with which they first entered medicine.
I just picked up another such book, cover above. I’ve only just started but these passages below jumped out at me below. You can also read a very favorable review from the NY Times, and also an excerpt there.
