His introspective quality resonates with those of us searching to find meaning in their work and deeper self understanding, whether physician or not. The author expertly describes his characters and revisits them throughout the book to reinforce his themes of development and lasting connections. Also revealed through the story telling is the author's seemingly unquenchable curiosity, which for the most part serves to benefit of his patients, whether it be uncovering a rare diagnosis or simply listening to their private confessions.
My one criticism of the book is the author's sometimes apologetic tendency, which although it gives a window into of the depth of his care, can also be viewed as an inappropriately placed burden.
What does a Neurologist do?
Overall, I felt the book is important for its descriptive quality of the kind of collaborative relationship that must exist between patient and physician to achieve health and what we can all learn in the context of such a relationship. Apr 26, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction , memoir , firstreads-and-other-giveaways , signed-by-author. I was fortunate enough to win a signed! I really enjoyed this book. It follows the first few years of a young doctor's private practice, and I think what I enjoyed most about it is the "behind the scenes" stories both about patients and their stories, and about the inner monologue of a doctor as they go about their work.
The book is quite well written especially for someone in a profession you don't necessarily equate with good writing. It's writ I was fortunate enough to win a signed! It's written in a conversational style, and does a great job of balancing the correct medical jargon with good explanations of what the heck that all means for the layperson.
There's also some interesting philosophical meanderings woven into the story, which gives the book that extra something more than just watching Untold Stories of the ER or some such program showing medical stories on tv. All the stories tie together into the doctor's journey of self-discovery and of growth as a physician.
If you're nosy like me and enjoy reading people's medical stories, and enjoy a good memoir, this one should be on your to-read list. May 30, Kay Daniels rated it really liked it.
