What’s it like to be a doctor? As a cardiologist, I find it hard to explain. This books provides insights in a unique fashion - by telling stories about patients - from a singular perspective - an academic surgical oncologist, and does so in ways applicable well beyond surgical oncology.
Curley shares the stories of his patients in an open and empathetic manner that provide a rare glimpse into the privileges and burdens as well as achievements and failures of being trusted with the lives and well-being of people who start as strangers and become friends and teachers. This book will be a classic.
