BLUEINK REVIEWS SAID: "DR. MCCULLY TRAINED AT DUKE UNIVERSITY AND THE MAYO CLINIC. BEYOND MAKING THE READER THINK OR LAUGH, HIS STORIES OFTEN CONVEY A LESSON. THESE STORIES OF HIS PATIENTS ARE, BY TURN, JAW-DROPPING AND ENTERTAINING. A SKILLED WRITER AND STORYTELLER, DR. MCCULLY WRITES THAT HIS GOAL IS TO HUMANIZE DOCTORS. HE DOES THIS AND MORE. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK."

I thought this book was good and enjoyed the anecdotes and stories provided by the author, even though they are mostly outdated and somewhat unrepresentative of the current healthcare system. He had some decent points about potential drivers behind our astronomical healthcare costs when compared to other countries, especially considering outcomes are similar. The book was soured for me towards the end, however, when the author made some incredibly racist statements about some African Americans he worked with (beginning on page 150 of the e-book). For me it was blatant stereotyping and really turned me off the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I thought it was all right. I did laugh once at sick as hell anemia. The rest was all right but not great. It's about 180 pages with no graphic sex or extreme violence. In retrospect I think this may have been the problem.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
