This collection of forty-four short essays by Harvard educated doctors and medical students at Harvard Medical school is thought provoking and sometimes disturbing. As a OSU Comp Student 2009, I chose this book as I am considering a medical career, however the book is geared towards everyone, most medical jargon is explained, and several of the essays are of the personal lives of students and physicians. The insights of the doctor as he lives with a mistaken diagnosis or dealing with death is emotional and real. In the section, Finding a Better Way, the stories deal with finding solutions to the health care crisis and possible ways medical training can be changed to help medical students become better doctors.Was this review helpful?

the book is a really good read if your applying to medical school because it gives you an idea about how our ideals are put to the test and how the transition from second year to third year is more than just a change of where you will be taught. its comforting to know that physicians emotions and their expression do have a place in medicine. if youre looking for a leisure book that will leave you feeling that you have a little better perspective of medicine then this is your book!Was this review helpful?
