A wonderful autobiography about the dreams, the trials, the triumphs of one man whose fidelity to the Hippocratic Oath shines as a beacon to health professionals and patients, alike. In the telling of his story, Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld munificently opens his life, his work and his insights to us, taking us by the hand to reveal a world of medicine and caring during decades of dramatic change. From his entry into medical school through the Roddick Gates of McGill University in Montreal, to his inspirational journey into the lives and hearts of patients across America, Dr. Rosenfeld has remained ardently true to his calling, not only as healer and counselor, but also as lifelong learner of the marvels of medicine as they continue to unfold today. Dr. Rosenfeld's impact on modern-day cardiology and public health enlightenment is resounding. --Richard I.
