This volume had me smiling, recalling my own passage through med school. The entries are haiku-like in their economy, yet speak so eloquently about the experience. The variety astonishes me, as does the ability to capture the challenges and indignities that are inevitable in pursuing this calling, as well as our shock and despair on witnessing human suffering. The wisdom and insight in this collection will surprise you. It bodes well for the future of our profession.
