Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This book exhorts physicians to take care of themselves and do no harm to their health/life/family/environment while providing medical care for others. Written by Australian practitioners, it is clearly appropriate for physicians around the world.
Purpose: The authors correctly focus on the fact that clinicians tend to put others first and, while that is admirable, it leads to numerous personal difficulties. The authors have presented a well-written treatise on this important topic.
Audience: This book has value for everyone — clinicians, nurses, even family caretakers — who spend significant amounts of time caring for patients. It relates stories, offers suggestions, and gently probes the emotions, fears, and wishes frequently expressed by medical personnel. The authors are experienced practitioners and clearly understand their topic.
Features: The style is one of "thoughts on a topic." There is no formal thread, just a simple conversational style that addresses many appropriate areas. The book is easy to read, fits into a lab coat pocket, and can be carried anywhere.
Assessment: This is an extraordinary one-of-a-kind book for all clinicians as they take time to consider where they are and where they are going in their everyday lives. Well done!
