Review: Not in the sense of Grey's Anatomy, but in the sense of books about surgical practice, this one rates at the very top. It's a classic in that sense, and many of my friends going into medicine have read it. It opens you up to not only surgery but the art of performance in a myriad of ways. I simply highly recommend it. Read more
Review: A non-fiction book that compels like a novel. The best book I've read about the patient experience. More than other physician-turned-patient narratives Dr Awdish offers a perspective on both roles that is part advocacy, part empathy and part spiritual inspiration. A must read for both health care professionals and patients (which means all of us). Read more
Review: I was recommeded this book by a coworker when I was training to be a circulating RN. Good recommendation. It's pretty easy to carry around. It gives a basic overview of many of the procedures done in the OR, it includes info such as what the procedure is done for, steps of the procedure, and instrumentation used during the case, and other helpful info to give the truly novice circulating RN a background of what to expect during specific surgical case. It is easy to read and understand. I wo... Read more
Review: Dr. Welch once again does a great job breaking down some of the myths and fallacies of our modern medicalized world and gives physicians and patients a road map for living a healthy and relatively unmedicalized lifestyle.
The writing style is succinct and direct, mixing in humor (often self-effacing) and anecdotes from his professional and personal life. As a fellow physician, I wish all of our colleagues would read this book and gain some understanding of how we may sometimes do harm eve... Read more
Review: Since I am getting older (55+) I have been looking for ways to cut back on my running miles without compromising my age adjusted PR's. Weekly running mileage of 70+ miles was no longer fun because my body doesn't recover like it use to. I started to do more cross training but was trying to figure out how the running and cross training would all work together to keep me in a good running condition. This book helped me take a huge leap forward in trying to figure out how to balance my running a... Read more
Review: This book is essential to osteopathic medical students for OMM - it skips all the boring details and gets to the good stuff. The practice questions are great. What I don't understand is why they are still stuck in the 90s and not offering this as an ebook. Get on board, publishers! Read more

Review: Great book to read. A lot of information given that I was not aware of. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know about our history and is into medicine. It's a great way to read on how medicine was incorrectly used. Read more

Review: This book was very simple...so simple it almost made me feel simple. At first I thought that was a good thing, but the more I read the less useful it became. I would suggest this maybe more if you were teaching yourself...but for classes where a lecture of some sort is supplementing learning, this book is definitely way too easy. Read more
