"Iaquinta's book helped me relive my own surgical residency from 30 years ago, but this time I could laugh and smile about it because of the humorous self-deprecation he eloquently injects into the raw reality of universally intense, serious episodes of real-life surgical events. One need not be a physician or surgeon to enjoy his book. In fact, everyone can be thoroughly entertained by his true-life diary, in which he shares his experiences with circumspection and sensitivity, not typical of the public's perception of surgeons."
Peter Bretan, MD, FACS - Marin Medicine (Spring 2013)

This was one of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long time!
I have to disagree with those who said he spent too much focus on his relationship with his girlfriend. It was a well-rounded story that showed us that there is more to his life than his career choice, and that's what gives it depth and intrigue. It was never uninteresting to me, not to mention it was quite funny at times, and the only reason I give it 4 out of 5 stars is because I don't feel it was properly edited. As one example, I'm pretty sure Ears, Nose, and Tennis (p. 205) isn't a real specialty. There were several other simple errors that any editor should have picked up on. But the story itself was definitely worth 5 stars.
If he ever decides to write again, I'll be the first in line to read it. Thanks for a great read!
