His arrogance oozes from the pages, even as he attempts to paint a portrait of himself as a humbled by his experiences. He tells the reader how firmly he believes in the equality of women, while panting over a gorgeous 15 year old girl, whom he fervently hopes will show up in his exam room. In fact, he spends much more time discussing the various female patients he finds himself attracted to, than he spends discussing his small family. I really wanted to hear more about his attempts to balance a family and young children with the hectic pace of medical school, than about his rampant hormones.
In short, if you want to read the book, check your local library. It does have useful discription of clinical experience, if you ignore Dr. Konner's often ludicrous, outdated asides. But, if you are looking for a GOOD book on medical school, written by an insightful doctor, with more recent medical info, read "White Coat: Becoming a Doctor at Harvard Medical School" by Ellen Lerner.
Anyway, I think academia and medicine is a heavenly marriage. Maybe the author should check out some of the exposes on academia. It is not like they are meeting the ideals of yesteryear either.
Why did (s)he do that?
Why am I doing this?
Why did that happen?
Why did the doctor do that?
Well, if you want to understand how your doctor "got there", you will enjoy this book. It's been around a while and the perspective is sometimes a bit dated, but this writer gives you insights into the whys and wherefores of what happens to any son or daughter as they become a "healer".
Great joy, crushing sorrow, being full of pride and shame are all feelings along the way and you may gain a whole new perspective on that professional you visit to "play god" and heal your pain.
