Helpful Score: 6
This man started out in anthropology and went to medical school in his thirties. This is a well-written, well-thought-out book with both humor and compassion; you can't help feeling respect for the writer. The many, many medical details are also very interesting.

This is definitely a book for anyone interested in medicine and even just for people who want an inside view of what goes on in medical school.
