Don’t read this book - if you don’t love life, if you can’t laugh, if you don’t want to learn the well-kept secrets of an aging pediatrician!
ON THE OTHER HAND:
-If you’re a physician,
-If you wish to share in the fascinating tales and secrets of this doctor whose lucky life has been one adventure after another,
-If you’ve lived through the great depression of the thirties,
-If you’ve ever lived in a cold-water flat in Brooklyn,
-If you’re a veteran who served in our great Air Force or in our
(almost as great) Army or Navy,
-If you’ve had a brother, sister or child who has crashed through a plate glass storm door - before parents and
pediatricians fought for safety glass in storm doors.
-If you’ve helped in the national parent and pediatrician campaigns to make school buses safe,
-If you’re a mom who thinks that pacifiers can’t kill. (Think again!)
-Or too, if you want to share in medical discoveries which, until now, have remained secret.
