"What a special gift this book is, not only for the general public, but also for those like me who teach, and those who have come to learn in medical school. Laurence Savett shares the process of practicing humanistic medicine by explaining how to stand in the patients' shoes and look through their eyes, while actively listening to their stories. This highly readable, useful book is a treasure."-Susan Resnik, DrPH Facilitator, Doctor/Patient Communication Segment, University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine Author of Blood Saga: Hemophilia, AIDS, and the Survival of a Community
