This book and this author doesn't need those extremes. With a clear and personal voice, Dr. Feinstein tells stories that allow the reader to march with him through his third year of medical school. He writes about the various patients one sees in the hospital, the clinic, a nursing home, the OR, and how they are as much his teachers as his attendings are.
It's a quick and very entertaining read. In one half-hour, I belly-laughed, gasped and welled-up. One doesn't need theme music or affairs in the call room when the stories are told with such honesty, sympathy and insight. Very well done.
Having known James for over ten years (since college), I can attest that this book is a true reflection of his dedication to medicine and desire to help people.
