A book about what it means (and takes) to be a good doctor, and for that reason very much a book for patients as well as doctors—which is to say a book for everyone. “A gem for physicians, future physicians, and clinicians of all types…. It presents advice to practitioners…and contains many brief examples and aphorisms.” —American Psychological Association
