    Not particularly exciting or thrilling, but if you enjoy books about medicine or health, you might like this one It was easy to understand and had a fair amount of personal insight into why one chooses to become a doctor.

    A book for doctors and their heart patientsIts not too technical that the heart patients are turned off They read about procedures they have had or may have explained in understandable detail They are made aware of all the specialities and sub specialities in cardiology A whole picture of the field For doctors it emphasizes that in spite of all the technology listening and observing the patient has a place and is important to diagnosis.

    Back to residency Reading this book was like reviving my first residency in the early 1970 s and the thenhands on experiences during Medical School years Of course today specialties and sub sub ones were not available then, and back up was less available I wonder how the burn out numbers differ between now and then
