Overview

Faced with a multitude of challenges, Dr. German captures the very personal and arduous journey to become a young surgeon, starting as a hopeful prep school student in Connecticut and ending as a surgeon in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam conflict. His metamorphosis from student to surgeon is poignant, sensitive and heartwarming, and gives insight into the emotions that a professional must confront and eventually transcend for success in this most intimate and demanding of all medical fields.

"From the first page of this book, I felt up on a surfboard and riding this wave, taking every turn and surge with ease-when I thought I would fall off or become temporarily blinded by a wall of unfamiliar information I remained standing-riding this wave of this-I don't know what-this guy's journey. Dr. German's writing is super-likable, engaging and immediate. Having grown up back East, done the boarding school thing and been a bit of a 'chart my own course kinda guy'-I could immediately relate to the premise of the journey, but the accessibility, visceral connection to the actual procedures and the journey taken in order to become a surgeon, really hit hard".
--David Wike, actor, director, writer and producer

Rich German grew up in Middletown, Connecticut, a small town nestled against the Connecticut River. He attended Suffield Academy in northern Connecticut, Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts, the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in Rochester, New York and, after serving two years in the U.S. Navy, completed his surgical training at Harbor General Hospital/UCLA in Los Angeles, California. For 35 years he performed general, trauma, cancer and vascular surgery in Southern California before moving to Carmel, California with his wife Holly.
