I truly believe that one of the reasons I enjoyed this book so much was because it didn't follow that formula; it was a pretty simple read, really refreshing, to the point where I really looked forward to picking it up after a day of classes. Dr. K. does outline the nitty gritty of the medical career (sleep deprivation, death, etc.) but in no way does he dwell on it to the point that it becomes discouraging to a prospective medical student. He weighs the pros and cons with a good balance, and injects humor (another aspect that lacks from most medical school memoirs). Every aspiring medical student understands that medical school is difficult, strenuous and tiring; we're reminded of it every day during our undergrad. It's absolutely lovely to read a memoir that outlines, not only the difficulties, but the good and humorous times a young doctor had during his early medical career.
It depends on how deep you want to go. It was entertaining, but not much there. Hot lights, Cold Steel was a lot better.
When the Air Hits Your Brain, Tales in Neurosurgery whole lot better. Pretty much anything by: Frank Vertosick Jr.
Trauma, My Life as an Emergency Surgeon a lot better. ANYTHING BY Atul Gawande, he is one of my favorites. I am waiting for
a new book by him. How Doctors Think is a very good book for patients to read. It teaches you what NOT to say to your doctor.
Let him do the work. Heart Matters is very good and funny!!!!!!!!!!! How We Die by Nuland is excellent. Well, thats my
input! I am in the healthcare field and reading alot of these books adds good tidbits of learning. Also working with a lot
of doctors increases my knowledge and taught me alot. They are human with the same flaws as we have, some even much worse.
I like the remark I heard once, that its not cost effective to give this old man this medicine, how
much longer does he have to live? That one seared my flesh.
I have heard them swear pretty bad! (Let's not mention ego here among surgeons.) They fight with their spouses just as much or more
than we do. I very much disagree with a doctor recently who told me all doctors are about the same as far as knowledge. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Their abilities are the same as my colleague's abilities.
Some of us are very good at what we do and try hard to keep up, some.....................................
