Format: Paperback
written in a flowing and exciting style ala "Harold Robbins," the story is mesmerizing from start to finish. Revelations are harsh and uncompromising as the flaws in American medicine are exposed. You are left with the understanding that there is tremendous room for improvement in our training of physicians and our medical system as a whole.

To be sure, this book has a flaw or two - chiefly with the way this guy comes across as terminally arrogant. He can't stop bragging about his football prowess, his fatal charm with women, his ability to skate through tough academic classes with minimal expenditure of effort, etc. ad nauseum. Not to mention his unerring knack for outmaneuvering his adversaries. The guy is downright full of himself. For a large part of the book, I was not sure what he was really writing about - himself or the title topic.

But he eventually got there. His quite credible insider information goes a long way to validate feelings I've had about the gynecology specialty - and male physicians in general - for most of my life. The long and short of it: No matter how many breasts, female genitalia or just plain nude female bodies these guys get to see, they never stop being men. This guy freely admits what most doctors would sweep under the rug: White coats aside, they are still men - inherently visual creatures who still get turned when exposed to the nudity of our wives, girlfriends, mothers and daughters. No matter what his more disingenuous colleagues may try to assure you, these guys are not taught in medical school or at any other juncture of their training, to turn off their normal male libidos. Far from it, many of these fellows wallow and delight in the kind of free access to female nudity - all cloaked in a veil of medical legitimacy/necessity - that few men ever enjoy in their lifetimes. This tome should be required reading for any man with a significant female in his life.

Despite the abrasive demeanor of the main character, I had to give this one five stars on its content alone.

Format: Hardcover
Apparently the editor at the publishing house was asleep the day this manuscript was printed and bound. This is one of the poorest examples of writing I have ever read in published form. As if that wasn't bad enough, it reads like some spoiled egomaniac's view of life. Everything good was of his making and every witty remark was attributed to him, whereas all that was negative, ill-conceived or stupid was generated by everyone else around him. His sexual prowess and ability to dazzle the reader with his brilliance was all the author seemed to want to convey. I was bored silly. There are too many great, or even entertaining books, out there to waste time on trash like this. I learned nothing of the medical field that was helpful.

A life experience of a man who choose to become a gynecologist to serve women's medical needs. His story from medical school to starting a new practice is fascinating.
