If you answered yes, then you will love this book. Berton Roueche originally wrote these medical stories for the New Yorker Magazine, and although the stories may be a bit dated, they are still very compelling. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stories of medical mysteries, and/or anyone interested in the medical field. Great book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
