I enjoyed this book very much. I often watch her on the morning shows. She has become a very compassionate, wise and inspiring woman. There is a real need for more female doctors like her out there. Someone who really understands their patients needs.
Linda C. (Seagull) reviewed Necessary Journeys: Letting Ourselves Learn From Life on
"I never expected life to be so messy."
"If a palm reader had studied my hand while I was growing up and told me that along with becoming a doctor and a television correspondent, I'd be married three tiems, go broke once, start my life over alone with two children in a brand-new city at the age of thirty-six, and, finally, end up personally happy in my forties as a wife and mother of three, I would have yanked my hand back and rolled my eyes. And asked for a refund."
This was a good book, it was a little more in the woman empowerment genre than an autobiography, but it was a bit of both. I had never heard of her before I picked this book up at a booksale, but I enjoyed the book.
