The “good doctor Bob” has written a book that is must reading for physicians—especially, in my opinion, for young men and women entering the medical profession. He writes with great thought and with uncanny perception. The book also is a great aid for patients who will get a heads up before their first visit to the physician of their choice. Well done Dr. Bob!
