This is a great book, not only does it tell you a fictional story about a group of doctors, but gives you a good history lesson about what was happening in the 60's and 70's and what that meant for different groups of people. I have enjoyed three of Erich Segal's stories and I would recommend them to anyone who enjoys a long story about lifetime friends and their situations throughout growing up.
A well written book by Erich Segal. Young interns going through Harvard Med. School meet all of life's problems balanced with their own studies and maturity. Written in 1988, it was new to me and very good.
