The Heart and Soul of Medicine.

This book was more a collection of stories than a story. There were many different doctors that each contributed a story, sometimes even two stories, to this book.

Some stories were lighthearted, other made me want to cry. One even made me angry with the doctor.

The only thing that was missing from this book was a nurses perspective. I would have been interested to hear a story or two from a nurse. We see things very differently than doctors do, mostly because we are in the middle of what is going on with the patient, not just coordinating their care but giving the care that they so desperately need.

He is coming out with another book in April of 2010, and I will definitely be picking it up.
