I loved hearing about this world that is so common to us yet whose inner workings are so foreign. Mr. Pascoe makes personal what is usually taken for granted and relates the complexity of this world in a simple human way.
Every day this doctor literally holds life and death in his hands and it's moving to hear how seriously the man takes his work and transforms it into a sacred act.
Couldn't "put it down."
