The list author says: "Physicians are a breed apart, often revered, sometimes reviled. It is always a pleasure to find a doctor who can both improve our condition and/or save our lives, and write about the process."
"40 gruesome 19th century medical photographs, mostly by doctors. One of the photographs is of three doctors who belong to a duelling (!) society. The scars on their cheeks would NOT induce me to visit their surgeries."
"I read this autobiography in one sitting, fascinated by Dr. Rosenbaum’s transformation from all-powerful physician to powerless, fearful patient, then back to physician again, but with the additional role of patient-advocate. Most of us choose to forget our experiences in the cancer ward, but this author courageously shares his year as a cancer patient with us."
"One doctor's stories about life in the Neonatal ICU. This book is part autobiography, part text book. This duality makes it hard to figure out the intended audience, but this book is passionately written."
