    Sometimes in medicine the only way to know what is truly going on in a patient is to operate, to look inside with one's own eyes. This book is exploratory surgery on medicine itself, laying bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actually is - complicated, perplexing, and profoundly human.

    Overall

    WOW! What a great book and really informative! I am a firm believer in informed consent when planning on surgery. This is a must read/listen for any patient or health provider. Let's be honest, it can't all fall on the service provder's shoulders, we also need to take some responsibility for our own health. By working together with our service provider, we can be much more likely to reach our goals. This book allows us to be informed of what could happen so that we can learn how to avoid unnecessary complications.

    Story

    In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father, a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man, has been killed in a car accident.

    Marcelaine says: "I laughed and cried, what a great listen!"
    "Refreshing and down to earth..."
    Overall

    Wonderful book and story. Enlightening take on life and how we can make our lives happen by taking responsibility for ourselves. I wish there were more with the ability to think this way. What a positive place we could live in!
