Jerome Groopman writes with great compassion and humanity. If you enjoy true medical stories, I highly recomment this book and the next two that he has written. You will find out a lot about how doctors make diagnoses and how they can sometimes be very mistaken. Groopman never loses sight of the human stories behind both the patients and the doctors trying to do the best for them. ( )
