On Page 5 of the book, the author says:
"it's a 'one-sitting book' designed to distill current clinical papers and reaearch; provide proper guidelines to avoid and/or limit unnecessary distress; strengthen the inner life of physicians, nurses and allied health personnel; and offer recommendations for further reading on the topic. If nothing else, its goal is to raise awareness that secondary stress is a danger.."
and I think this nifty little tome fills every one of these these goals and more. In a survey book, Dr. Wicks has managed to distill the best suggestions, on a very practical level, into something that's readable and deceptively simple. I say deceptive, because he has a way of describing the profound thoughts of stress, death, burnout, and spirituality into an engaging style.
It is readable and has many anecdotes to which a clinician will relate. He makes excellent use of summarized bullet points, and checklist style formats to present ideas. I found myself thinking of all the people who need this as a christmas present.
in short: highly recommended!
