Piece of My Mind by JAMA
Book Descriptionreflections and insights on health, disease, and healing Now in paperback for the first time, A Piece of My Mind brings together revealing personal essays that first appeared in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). These engrossing, moving vignettes----written by physicians, patients, family members, medical students, and others----offer a unique glimpse into the everyday experiences and relationships in the medical world. Baring their souls and opening their hearts, the authors share their most personal moments, stories, and observations. Youa ll hear from the intern who could not hide her emotions, earning reprimand from her supervisors but appreciation from her patients ...meet an alcoholic whose indomitable spirit helped her defy all the odds ...experience the heartbreaking comedy of a Monday morning HIV clinic ...be inspired by the oncology social worker who found a new love of life during her own struggle with breast cancer ...and learn from the physician who realized that by witnessing her patientsa courage she became a better physician. Compelling, touching, and at times humorous, A Piece of My Mind offers a deeper understanding of physicians, patients, medicine, and the simple human act of helping another person. "These stories, based in science, are transmitted to readers ...after filtering through a human heart ...consistently succeeds in bridging science and the humanities." ----William H. Foege, MD, Emory University
