BOOK PREVIEW

This book, The Doctor-Writer, provides in a single capsule for the first time (and) on a global scale, a unique window into the arcane world of  medical doctors who have(had) broken out of their professional cocoon to find fulfillment, recognition and immortality in creative writing. It chronicles, in a lucid and revealing manner, the literary accomplishments of early doctor-writers and the progress of modern doctor-writers while offering useful tips for future doctor-writers. The list of these doctors is endless. However, their listing in this volume is by no means in the order of importance, popularity or professional attainments. Rather, it is a “rainbow haul” of randomized representation of doctor-writers spanning many centuries of human history.
The Doctor-Writer is an inimitable addition to knowledge in the modern medical world. The opening chapters, featuring Tony Miksanek’s Seven Reasons Doctors Write and David Hellerstein’s How to Become a Doctor-Writer, for instance, serve both as an aperitif for the tyro and a dessert for the veteran. WATCH OUT FOR THIS INDISPENSABLE COMPENDIUM .
