About the Author

As a pediatrician, writer, wife, and mother, Perri Klass has demonstrated how medicine is integral to the health of families and communities, and how doctors themselves struggle to balance the conflicting needs of profession, self, and family. As medical director of Reach Out and Read, she encourages other pediatricians to foster pre-reading skills in their young patients.  While earning her M.D. at Harvard, Klass contributed articles to Mademoiselle and The New York Times as well as to scientific and medical journals. She also wrote her first book, A Not Entirely Benign Procedure (1987), which chronicles her introduction to medicine and motherhood. In the following years she has continued to publish books, essays, award-winning short stories, a novel, and numerous articles, ranging from professional papers to popular journalism and travel pieces.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful collection of anecdotes by paeditricians. Some recollect their student days, some look back on a long career, some practice in different countries or grapple with cultural differences. Some tales are heartbreaking, others are heartwarming. It makes you thankful if you have a healthy child and hopeful if you unfortunately do not. A great read for would be paediatricians, parents/caregivers and anyone interested in medicine.
