Publisher's Summary

Meet Patch Adams, M.D., the revolutionary doctor who has challenged the foundations of modern medicine not only by making healthcare personal, but also by making it free. In 1971, Adams and a few colleagues founded the Gesundheit Institute, a free hospital in West Virginia, dedicated to an unorthodox view of medicine and of the patient- doctor relationship: one employing laughter, listening, and mutual respect. Adams' vision heralds a brighter future, one that offers the possibility of affordable, humane healthcare for all. This extraordinary story was made into a major motion picture starring Robin Williams as Patch Adams.

Copyright ©1993 by Patch Adams with Maureen Mylander; Recording (P)1998 by NewStar Media

    "Loved it! Made me laugh and cry"

    This book made me laugh and cry a couple of times. I loved it. If you want to recover faith ib humanity, this is the book to read. Very inspirational.

    As for the audible version, the sound quality is not the best, but it's clear enough to enjoy

    "Life changing"

    I just finished medical school and started my internship. This book has changed my whole view of the medical profession filling me with a hope that things can really get better. If you are working or interested in health care I can't recommend this book enough for you.
