    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.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Twelve Patients?

    When Dr. Manheimer learned that he had cancer and was now also a patient.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Overall yes, seem to drag a few times but still riveting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Stirred my emotions, compassion, fear of being sick, voyeurism, sense of getting real life, privileged information/life stories although names and identities are hidden.


    Any additional comments?

    Good opportunity to better understand a section of New York Cities daily life, covering all economic and cultural levels. Felt like I was there at Dr. Manheimer's side. I really enjoyed this audio book.
