    In the spirit of Oliver Sacks Awakenings and the TV series House, Dr. Eric Manheimer's Twelve Patients is a memoir from the medical director of Bellevue Hospital that uses the plights of 12 very different patients - from dignitaries at the nearby UN, to supermax prisoners from Riker's Island, to illegal immigrants, and Wall Street tycoons - to illustrate larger societal issues.

    Story
    Would you listen to Twelve Patients again? Why?

    Yes. I am a nurse who deals with patients and events very similar to the ones Manheimer describes. He very effectively captures the difficulties, anguish and satisfaction of being in the medical profession. He also weaves in the societal ills that lead to physical illness.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Manheimer's story is one of the most affecting.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How did you get to this place.


    Any additional comments?

    Moving, meaningful and realistic. I am a nurse manager and I plan to buy a copy for each of my 30 nurses.
