Treatment Kind and Fair by Perri Klass
Book DescriptionThis work provides a glimpse inside the doctor's mind for aspiring physicians, medical buffs, and anyone who's ever been a patient. If you get completely wrapped up in the drama of "E.R." or "House", or sit in the surgery wondering what's really going on in your doctor's head, then this book is for you. Expertise versus commonsense practice; moral judgments on young patients or their parents; asking tough questions; death and physician-assisted suicide; daily life with a doctor's job (yours or a family member's); doctors as patients - Klass addresses the primary issues in the life of any doctor and, by extension, the lives of those for whom they care. Ranging broadly in subject matter, these brief, intellectual primers to life are a stimulating read for anyone who wants to experience the insights, wisdom and advice of today's leading minds.
